First it was Dani Alves.
Now Xavi is out. Xavi is done and looks like MLS don't even want him.
Qatari club Al Sadd reckon that they have tied up the signing of Barça player Xavi Hernández, who is on the point of putting an end to his lengthy career at the Catalan club.
"Al Sadd have just managed to sign Barcelona captain Xavi and this is a picture of him with sporting director Muhammed Ghoulam", the club's director general, Abdullah Al-Berik posted on Instagram.
The current Barcelona captain, who will join Al Sadd next season, may have signed a contract for three years with the club in which Raúl González played before moving on to New York's Cosmos. Xavi, a product of Barcelona's youth academy and a part of their first team since 1998, has won 25 titles for his club. Neither he nor Barça have as yet confirmed this move.
The Barça man was on the point of leaving last summer, but in the end decided to continue under the orders of newbie manager Luis Enrique Martínez. His last game for the club may be against Athletic in the Copa del Rey final.
