According to beIN Sports reporter Khaled Waleed, Xavi will be appointed Barca new coach as Valverde will be sacked.
He writes on his Twitter: ” Xavi is now FC Barcelona’s coach! All the details will be announced tomorrow (on Sunday), with his club Al Saad honouring and thanking him for his work at the club.”
The date of his presentation and his first match as a coach for Barça will also be revealed.
At the same time, a picture is leaked in which Xavi, Khaled Waleed and Abidal sit together, which hints that Xavi’s Barca return is a done deal.
However, RAC1 journalist Romero insists that the photo is old and they do not yet have the confirmation that Xavi will sign.
According to Cope, Xavi’s agents are drafting contracts in Saudi Arabia. The person in charge of drafting that contract is Fernando Solanas, who has been there for a few days.
