Chelsea want Xavi?

Of course they want him,’cause he’s one of the greatest in the world…


As Roman Abramovič looks to reorganise the squad at the end of the current season,Xavi is reported to be a target for the Blues. Xavi is on their target since Jose Mourinho’s time in the club,as he was aware of his greatness from a young age (Mourinho worked with Louis van Gaal at Barcelona).While the 28-year-old has a contract at Barça until 2010, his buy-out clause for foreign clubs stands at €60 million and at €150 million for any interested clubs in Primera.That amount would still prove to be way too much for Chelsea, but they could hope to tempt Xavi with a jump in salary and four-year deal at Stamford Bridge.One major obstacle to the whole operation could be Xavi’s desire to spend his entire career at Camp Nou, a point he made clearly when signing a contract extension in 2005.The news that Chelsea could be interest also comes at a time when Xavi is angling for a new deal and any interest from other clubs could help in his negotiations.Barça would have to raise his salary to prevent the player from being tempted by other offers and also put a lifetime contract on the table that would keep him at the club for at least another four seasons.
