Marca report that Javi Gracia will replace Xavi Hernández as the next manager of Qatari outfit Al Sadd.
The 51-year-old coach has been without a club since leaving Valencia. Elche and Flamengo both showed their interest in Gracia but in the end, he has opted for Qatar.
Gracia will work alongside former Malaga and Villarreal player Santi Cazorla. Al Sadd, who saw head coach Xavi recently leave for Barcelona, are currently leading the Qatari All-Star League with 25 points from nine games.
