Xavi has been heavily linked with a highly anticipated return to the Camp Nou in the coming weeks with the La Blaugrana board targeting the former Spanish international as Ronald Koeman’s replacement at the club.
Club president Joan Laporta has hinted his previous talks with Xavi over the manager’s job but his current contract at the helm at Al-Sadd runs up until June 2023.
Al Sadd have issued a focused message via their official social media accounts, acknowledging their awareness of the speculation, but insisting that Xavi is committed to the club and focused on their upcoming games.
