Xavi has been talking about all things Spanish football and reckons Barcelona should have signed Atletico Madrid midfielder Rodrigo Hernandez.
The midfielder returned to Atletico in May after a fine spell at Villarreal, and Xavi thinks he’d fit in perfectly at the Camp Nou.
“He’s a superb player, and he would be even better in a style like Barcelona’s,” he said.
“He has both things, he is so good that he can play for Atletico, taking the ball, pressing and closing down spaces.
“He has the Barcelona profile, I see him as top class, like Busi [Sergio Busquets]. He lifts his heads up. Uff, he’s great. I think Barcelona should have signed him.”

Rodri’s been a regular for club and country this season and Luis Enrique tipped him to become better than Busquets back in October saying: “He can reach Busquets’ level and maybe surpass it. Who knows what limits he has?”
