Sunday rumour mill: Man United, City and Arsenal offered Xavi

Pirlo and Xavi Italy Spain

The Daily Star has today claimed that the Barcelona midfielder could well be heading to the Premier League this summer.

With the likes of Victor Valdes and Carles Puyol set to leave Barcelona this summer and the potential for a new manager at Camp Nou, a summer of changes are widely expected at the Catalan side.

Today’s British tabloids are suggesting that another of Barca’s homegrown stalwarts could be offloaded this summer, with Xavi’s future at the club in doubt.

The Daily Star has intimated that the World Cup winning midfielder has been offered to a host of Premier League clubs as the Spaniards look to freshen up their side.

The report claims that Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United have all been contacted about a potential summer move for the veteran.

Xavi, who is 34 and expected to play a key role for Spain at this summer’s World Cup, still has two years left to run on his contract at his boyhood club.

However, he has been linked with a move to the MLS of late, with a last bumper payday for the star potentially on the cards.

The report also claims that Xavi would want a £150k-a-week deal to move to England, which could put a dampener on him signing for a Premier League side.
