Xavi is currently coach of Al Sadd but crossing over Barcelona will not be a problem.
There are reports that Xavi might be Barcelona's new coach.
According to AFP, Barcelona are close to finalising Xavi Hernandez’s long-anticipated return as coach.
Barca president Joan Laporta was reportedly in talks with Xavi about the vacant position on Thursday morning.
This comes after Ronald Koeman was sacked by the club yesterday.
Xavi is currently coach of Al Sadd but prising him away from the Qatari club is not expected to be a problem, with the Spaniard eager to complete a sensational return.
The Guardian reports that Xavi has accepted an offer from Barcelona to become their head coach after the sacking of Ronald Koeman.
The deal is due to be confirmed once agreement is reached to terminate his contract as manager of the Qatari club Al Sadd.
The 41-year-old left Barcelona in 2015 on the back of winning the treble, which took his career tally to eight titles in La Liga and four in the Champions League.
He is widely considered one of the club’s greatest ever players and there is huge excitement about his potential as a coach, after his influence on the iconic Barca team managed by Pep Guardiola.
