It is understood that Qatari side Al-Sadd are holding on to their Spanish gaffer who has won many trophies in his short spell at the club.

Al-Sadd released a statement on the situation recently:

"The position of the club is clear from the beginning: we are committed to keeping our coach Xavi with us and we cannot allow him to leave at this delicate time of the season."

On the other hand, it is now looking likely that Xavi is considering rejoining his former club as he nears signing a deal with Barca.

Xavi said:

"I've been talking to Barca for days, it's done.
"But now it depends on the conversations between clubs, they need to reach an agreement. Barca is coming to talk, we are all eager and excited. We'll see if it ends up being done.
"I really want to go home. I hope it happens. I have a contract and now the clubs have to negotiate. They already know my position."
