Xavi to Barcelona: Video welcoming legend back to club has gone viral

Xavi is returning to Barcelona

Xavi Hernandez is on the brink of being appointed Barcelona's new manager.

The 41-year-old's current club, Al Sadd, confirmed on Friday that he is leaving the club to return to Barca.

Turki Al-Ali, Al Sadd's CEO, said: "The #AlSadd administration has agreed on Xavi’s move to Barcelona after the payment of the release clause stipulated in the contract. We’ve agreed on cooperation with Barcelona in the future. Xavi is an important part of Al-Sadd’s history and we wish him success.

"Xavi informed us a few days ago of his desire to go to Barcelona at this particular time, because of the critical stage his hometown club is going through, and we understand this and decided not to stand in his way."

Xavi is, of course, one of the best players in Barcelona's history.

He made 767 appearance for the club, scoring 85 times, while also helping the club to 25 major trophies.

Xavi takes over a Barcelona squad side that are having a very disappointing season.

They are currently ninth in La Liga, having won just four of their opening 11 games to start the season, while they are also in danger of missing out on a place in the Champions League knockout rounds.

To make matters even worse, the club is also in financial turmoil.

Xavi has a lot of work to do to get the club back to where they once were, that's for sure.
