The Catalans have confirmed that as part of their sponsorship agreement with Qatar Sports Investments, a friendly will be played in Qatar during the first quarter of 2014.

Sport understand that, barring any surprises, the game will be set during the month of February and that the opponents will be English, with a choice currently set between Chelsea and Manchester United.

It is believed that facing Chelsea would be preferred option for the game’s sponsors, for the curiosity of seeing former Real Madrid Coach Jose Mourinho once more face the Blaugrana.
