Barcelano star Xavi is reportedly being sought after by Premier League giants Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United.

The 34-year-old might leave Barcelona with a summer clear out imminent at the club following a disappointing season. He has made 29 appearances for the Catalans this season and has managed to score only 3 times, his worst goal scoring record since the 2010/2011 season.

Manchester City are in the lead to get his signature as top brass Ferran Soriano and Txiki Begiristain know the star well from their time at Barcelona, but his high wages and the recent £50million fine by UEFA means that they may not be able to afford him.

Xavi has 2 more years left on his contract at Barcelona but is believed to be an admirer of Arsenal. Manchester United are also in the market for midfielders and could make a swoop for him. 

He was also previously reported to move to Major League Soccer side, New York Red Bulls.
