Xavi completed a return to the Camp Nou last month, as Ronald Koeman’s replacement with La Blaugrana, after two years in Qatar.
The 41-year-old clinched the Qatar Stars League title at the end of 2020/21 with Bounedjah finishing as the league’s top goal scorer with 21 goals.
Boundejah has established himself as the dominant goal machine Qatar, following his 2015 move from Tunisian side Étoile Sportive du Sahel, with three top season scorer awards.
In total, the 29-year-old has netted an incredible 169 goals in 165 games for Al-Sadd across all competitions, with 11 already in 2021/22.
Bounedjah is under contract with Al Sadd until 2024, however, Barcelona could tempt him to Europe with an offer in the region of €8m.
