Manchester City target also being hunted by Arsenal

xaviThere are some very sore heads here in the Football Transfer Tavern today but the Daily Star has perked some of our punters up.

Of course Manchester City fans are the ones who are struggling the most – and as we tell them about the links with Barcelona star Xavi, they are thrilled.

However, as our landlord notes over pouring a few pints we deem to be hair of the dog, Manchester United and Arsenal are also keen on the Spanish star which could be an issue.

Given Xavi is rather dedicated to Barcelona, not to mention the fact that he has two years left on his current deal, the chances of him walking out are still rather slim.

As some of our less hungover punters note, the fact that Xavi is also being hunted by Manchester United and Arsenal may provide some hurdles to a potential move.

Not that we would expect Xavi to choose either one of those clubs over the newly crowned champions of England that is!

Do you think City have any chance of getting Xavi away from Catalonia or is his love for Barcelona far too strong? Let us know your thoughts below.
