The season hasn’t even started yet, and already Liverpool and Manchester United are preparing to do battle against the other in a fight to sign a very crafty Spanish midfielder.
Spanish rag, Marca, is reporting that the two Premiership clubs are set to jump into the arena with the non-Special One, and tussle for Barcelona midfielder, Xavi.

Xavi was a huge part of Spain’s Euro championship team, so any of the three teams would be more than happy to take the midfield ace off the Catalan giant’s hands. But like all rumours, it still remains to be seen if any of three clubs could meet what would surely be a high asking-price. Liverpool would seem the least likely of the two Premiership teams to make a serious move, since they seem to be set on bringing in Gareth Barry. Manchester United, like Liverpool, seem to be well-covered for the position as well.
Would Man United or Liverpool supporters welcome a move for Xavi? Do you think either could will seriously consider a move for the midfield general?
