Some rumors say that we are close to seeing the end of an era.
According to reports from Daily Star, FC Barcelona superstar Xavi has been offered to Premier League teams by his agents. At 34 years old, the legendary Barça midfielder is allegedly set to leave after more than two decades as a Blaugrana.
The top candidates to sign Xavi are Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United. City is still looking for squad improvement to compete for an European title. The problem would be the heavy UEFA Financial Fair Play sanctions already given to the club in the last couple of weeks. Xavi's wage would be the issue, and paying 150k a week could be a problem for City.
Also according to the rumors, if the Manchester City move doesn't work, Arsenal could be the destination for Xavi. Arsenal wants central midfield help, and money is not a issue for the them.
The report also says that Xavi is a Manchester United admirer, and is public knowledge that United is going to make a big squad revolution, and midfield is the club's biggest targets.
What do you think, Barça fans? If the rumor is true, do you want to see Xavi leaving?
