Xavi is discussing extending his stay with Barcelona.
The veteran midfielder was expected to leave this summer for Qatar’s Al Sadd.
However, Sport says Xavi’s agent, Ivan Corretja, met with Barca chief Albert Soler yesterday to discuss the midfielder’s situation.
A new option is now being considered, which would see Xavi stay with Barca until January 2016 before moving to Qatar.
The Spaniard visited the Qatar last week with his family.
