Barcelona Legend Xavi Signs Three-Year £23 Million Deal At Qatar Club Al Sadd SC

Barcelona legend Xavi Hernandez will quit the La Liga club at the end of the season to sign for Al Sadd SC.

The 35-year-old will end his 17 year association with the Catalan club in the summer and move to Qatar on a three-year deal, with an option for a fourth.

The Spanish World Cup winner had offers from MLS and China, but opted to move to the Middle East after being offered a staggering 30 million Euros over his initial three seasons.

Xavi moves to Al Sadd just as fellow Spaniard Raul heads for the exit door, with the former Real Madrid striker signing for New York Cosmos.

During his time in Qatar, Xavi has announced plans to study for his coaching license and he will have the chance to further any potential career in management at the Qatari Aspire Academy, with the group headed by General Director Iván Bravo.
