Xavi Hernandez spoke about his future after Al-Sadd’s 3-3 draw with Al-Duhail, likely his final game as coach of the Qatari club.

“The two clubs are in conversation,” said the Barcelona legend of his move to Camp Nou. “I can’t say a lot more but I’m a positive person. They have to agree. That’s where it is. The two clubs know my position and I hope it’s sorted out soon.”

Xavi wants to return to Barcelona and Rafa Yuste and Mateu Alemany are negotiating with Al-Sadd to get him on Barca’s bench.

He added: “I’m really looking forward to returning home. I hope it happens. It would be spectacular to coach Barcelona/ We have to end the ‘isms’ and all move as one. Now I’ll dine with the directors of Al Sadd and Barca.”
