Xavi Hernandez one of Barcelona stalwarts looks more and more likely to be leaving the club sooner rather than later and this has intensified interest in the player from a lot of the continents top clubs and Tottenham under Harry Redknapp will throw their hat into the ring.
Redknapp is on record saying that Spurs need an accomplished defensive midfielder and his a known admirer of the player and will be prepared to bid big for the player.
Xavi at 28 is keen to try the Premiership and has told reporters he has achieved everything with Barcelona and would like a new challenge.

£22m-rated Xavi has gone from strength-to-strength over the past year and half, even if his Barcelona side have somewhat stuttered of late, and it’s hard to know why his Catalan employers can’t resolve the contract problems. This is especially when you consider that the midfielder has been at the club since he was 11! A list as long as you can imagine is forming, just in case the Spanish international does the unthinkable and leaves his hometown club, so it does make sense for Harry to register, which is what this source seems to suggest. Do Tottenham fans think they would stand a chance of capturing a player of Xavi’s calibre?
