What will Xavi's salary be after he paid his own release clause?

The deal to bring Xavi Hernandez to Barcelona as manager is complete after he paid his own release clause, what will his salary be?


Xavi Hernandez and Barcelona have finalised all details to bring the former captain back to the club as manager, only subject to unveiling after Xavi flies into Spain later today.

Xavi will replace the sacked Ronald Koeman and also end the time of Barcelona B manager Sergi Bajuan as interim coach. It is widely reported in the Spanish media that Xavi paid his own release clause of €5m to Al Sadd to help Barcelona's financial struggles, who are still struggling to pay Ronald Koeman's severance fee up to the tune of £12m.

Barcelona's salary cap by La Liga for the season is £97m and before Koeman was sacked, Barcelona only had available £4m to pay as salary but with Koeman's departure it has risen to about £10m though the club will not pay him as much as that.

He is expected to sign a three years contract and be given time to lead the club back to glory majorly utilising the La Masia graduates. Xavi is known to have Barcelona's tiki taka philosophy which he implemented at Al Sadd.
