Barcelona midfielder Xavi has said he would like to end his career at the Nou Camp ending any rumours that he may join Manchester United for the remainder of his career.

It is thought the 34-year-old is nearing the end of his illustrious career and has been linked with an Old Trafford switch over the season but has moved to quickly end such suggestions.

“There was always talk United or Chelsea or City or Arsenal wanted to sign me but never anything concrete,” Xavi told the Sun.

“My thinking was always clear. I am such a Barcelona fan so my first, second and third option is always Barca. I never thought of leaving like Cesc Fabregas, who went to Arsenal.

“I want to be here forever. If I am not at Barcelona, I will always be thinking of Barca. If I had played for City, United, Arsenal or Chelsea, I’d keep asking what is going on at Barca – my club.

“All the big English clubs know getting Xavi is impossible. They know Xavi is a fan of Barcelona, he won’t come.”

Xavi said he has had no regrets during his career but suggested a move to England at some point may have made it complete.
