Al Sadd won't stand in coach Xavi's way should he receive an offer from Barcelona.
Having officially penned a contract extension with the Qatari club on Wednesday, the former Barcelona midfielder is committed to the project he has overseen there. However, his name continues to be linked with the Blaugrana, especially as Koeman is coming under increased pressure.
Xavi's renewal with Al Sadd will run for two seasons, but it's understood that there has been contact between Joan Laporta and the coach in the last few weeks.
There isn't a clause in Xavi's contract, but Al Sadd have an understanding with him that they won't stand in his way if Barcelona make him an offer.
