But the Qatari club have put up strong opposition to the Spaniard leaving his managerial role in Doha.

However, a deal is inching close as Xavi has reportedly held two meetings to negotiate his departure from Al-sadd, according to SPORT.

Barcelona will then announce Xavi as the Blaugrana’s new head coach.
