Xavi Hernandez has officially renewed his deal with Al Sadd till 2023. The two-year extension will keep the Barcelona legend at the Qatari club where he’s been since 2019.

It was rumored that the contract renewal process with Al Sadd featured a clause that would allow Xavi to leave for Barcelona without any penalty. Those rumors helped to propel Joan Laporta’s supposed interest in Xavi in the run-up to his presidential victory.
