Barcelona chiefs Mateu Alemany and Rafa Yuste have touched down in Qatar ahead of talks with Al-Sadd.
Barca are in the process of trying to lure former midfielder Xavi Hernandez from the Qatari club.
Xavi is expected to replace Ronald Koeman in the coming days after taking charge of tonight’s clash with Al-Duhail in the Qatar Stars League.
And ahead of potentially bagging a deal for Xavi, the Barca chiefs will watch him in action.

Xavi will be in charge for the game, likely leading Al-Sadd for the final time after around two years at the club.
Talks between Alemany, Yuste and the Al-Sadd chairman Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Thani are set to follow with the hope a deal can be struck in the next 24 hours or so.
