Arsenal target Xavi moves closer to exit after Barca baulk at his wage demands
Xavi, the Barcelona midfielder voted the best player of Euro 2008, moved closer to leaving the Nou Camp after the club admitted talks about a new contract have broken down.
There have been more than 10 meetings between Xavi’s representatives and Barcelona about a new deal but there is little sign of progress.

There is continuing speculation regarding Xavi’s continuing career at Barcelona, and the longer this continues, the more likely a move for the one-club man will become. There is no doubting the talent of the Spanish international, and the fact the club is not instantly offering him what he wishes is a worrying sign for the club’s fans. In many ways, he would be perfect at the Emirates and the £22m-rated midfielder is known to have a big admirer in Arsenal’s boss and captain, thus further fuelling a potential move. This one could run and run until pen is put to paper.
Do Gunners fans feel this source could well be accurate, or will the Catalan club finally give in to the players demands?
