The approaches are believed to have come from agents after it was reported that the 34-year-old wants a summer move to test himself elsewhere before hanging up his boots.

Barca are set to undergo a massive season of transformation after falling short of their own impeccably high standards with some of the club’s old guard tipped to move on.

It had previously been suggested that he would make a move to the United States to see out his career with Manchester City’s MLS franchise New York FC.

Etihad Stadium top brass Ferran Soriano and Txiki Begiristain know the star well from their time at Barcelona. However, with the player demanding £150,000 per week, City may struggle to fit him in as they face a stinging UEFA fine of £50m for breaching its Financial Fair Play regulations.

Xavi is known to be an admirer of Arsenal, while Manchester United are also keen to add new midfielders to their books following a disappointing campaign of their own.
