Dad says Xavi will leave Barcelona

The father of Xavi says he will leave Barcelona at the end of the season.

The Champions League final on June 6 could be Xavi's last in the Blaugrana colours ahead of a reported move to Qatari club Al Sadd, having lost his regular starting place to Ivan Rakitic this season.

His father Joaquin Hernandez told Cope Radio: "His ultimate dream would have been to finish his football career here (at the Nou Camp).

"But he is 35 years old and I think there comes a time to say 'enough' to the club.

"He was very fortunate to receive a truly impressive offer that allows him to continue to play football, to prepare as a future coach and rest a little."
