Metro feature regularly today here in the Football Transfer Tavern when it comes to their rumours.
The latest one has not only Manchester United fans on their feet in excitement but also the rest of our punters.
The paper claims that Barcelona stalwart Xavi could well be ready to leave the club that he not only grew up at but also made his name at and has won just about everything there is to win at.
As we all know, Manchester United are looking for a creative presence in the middle of their park and despite the fact that Xavi is not exactly a spring chicken, David Moyes and his board know what a coup it could be to land the Spanish international for one last hurrah.
As one of our punters notes, to win everything there is to win in the game is pretty damn good and Xavi has done just that.
Despite the majority of our regulars feeling that he would never leave the Camp Nou, Xavi himself admitted: “It’s difficult to finish your career at Barcelona.
“I don’t know if I’ll end up finishing my career here.”
Those comments obviously came as a massive shock to our landlord and most people reading them, especially as the player’s fellow midfield assassin, Andres Iniesta has just signed a new long-term deal at the Camp Nou.
Is Xavi simply flirting or will he really be open to a move away from the Camp Nou? Let us know your thoughts below.
