According to Spanish publication Marca, the 38-year-old is about to sign a two deal in the coming weeks which would make him the new manager of Qatari club Al Sadd.

The former Blaugrana captain is apparently being lined up to replace current manager Jesualdo Ferreira but the Asian club's managing director Turki Al-Ali refused to go into much detail about the deal when asked.  

"The club has come to the beginning of an agreement for Xavi to continue for two more seasons, although his role has not yet been determined,” Al-Ali told Marca.

“He could continue as a player or just as well in another role, it will be announced soon."

Xavi's time in Qatar as a player has been successful, having won three trophies in three years with Al Sadd and now it seems to be the platform where he starts to develop his skills as a manager.
