DONE DEAL? Al Sadd coach Xavi agrees personal terms with Barcelona

Al Sadd coach Xavi has agreed personal terms over a return to Barcelona, it has been revealed.

Mundo Deportivo says Xavi has agreed to replace Quique Setien in the Nou Camp hotseat.

A 'firm agreement' has been finalised which would see Xavi take up the reins at the end of the season.

It is believed that talisman Lionel Messi - who has reportedly been considering his future at the club - and his team-mates are satisfied with what would be a sensational appointment.

Xavi, who current manages Al-Sadd in Qatar, has been touted to earn £5.4million per year from his new bumper contract.
