Xavi To Pay €5m Release Clause To Al-Sadd If He Is To Become Barcelona Manager.

Former Barcelona midfield Maestro, Xavi Hernández is reported to be paying Al-Sadd a €5m (5 million Euros) release clause if he is to become Barcelona’s new manager.

Al-Sadd announced earlier on Friday that the club had reached an agreement with Barcelona, and that the former midfielder would rejoin the Catalans with their blessing.

However, BT Sport cite reports in Spain as suggesting that the €5m release clause that must be paid will have to come out of Xavi’s pocket because the club can’t afford him under Spanish FFP rules.

“According to reports in Spain, Barcelona are unable to pay Xavi’s release clause at Al-Sadd due to La Liga’s financial Fair Play restrictions.

The legendary midfielder reportedly will be paying the €5m release clause in his managerial contract himself”, BT Sport wrote.

It’s yet another embarrassing episode that will continue to make Barca the laughing stock of world football. If nothing else, this current, lamentable, scenario shows just how badly the club was run under the previous administration.
