Al Sadd meet with Xavi

Al Sadd director of football Mohammed Al Ali believes if they are able to sign Xavi he will bring a whole new style of football with him that they can adopt at the club. 

With his Barca future unclear, Xavi has been in Doha over the weekend allegedly discussing the possibilities of a potential move to Al Sadd.

Al Ali told Marca: "We hope to sign him.

"We want Barca and the Spanish national side's style of touch play to penetrate right through the game in our country, and anyway I prefer the Spanish league to the English Premier League.

"There is something special about it, and that is 'tiki-taka'.

"We really like his charisma and the way he controls the ball. He represents touch play, and we want him to be an ambassador for Qatar's football."
