One more step in the possible landing of Xavi al Barça. Muhammad Ghulam Al Balushi, sports director of Al Sadd, confirmed on the AlKass television channel that there is an open communication channel between Barça and Xavi. “There are negotiations between Xavi and Barcelona now and we wish him success wherever he goes”, he said in the preview of the semi-final of the Qatari Cup between Al Sadd and Al Rayyan.Al Balushi’s statement consolidates the statement that the Qatari club made through the club’s general manager, Turki Al Ali, who already confirmed the talks on Friday and he had asked that Barça negotiate officially with Al Sadd. The option for Xavi to accept Barca’s offer and join next week as head of the Barca wardrobe begins to gain strength. In addition, Eric Abidal, sports director of the French club, and Oscar Grau, CEO of the club, right hand of Josep Maria Bartyomeu and strong man in the signing of contracts, remain in Doha, where they will meet this Saturday after the match with Xavi to try convince him to accept the Barca club’s offer.
