Recent reports have claimed that the former Arsenal man is high on Louis Van Gaals shopping list this summer, as well as Bayern Munich’s Toni Kroos, who is also wanted at Old Trafford.

During his presentation as Barca’s new boss, Enrique remained coy on the future of the former Arsenal man and whether he is set for a move to Old Trafford.

“In principle, we have not taken any decisions like that because we still have time,” he told reporters.

“Some players are now focused on the World Cup finals, which is their job, and how it should be.

“We need to assess and evaluate now and when the time is right we will go into that and we will talk about everything.”

Enrique also refused to divulge on the future of former teammate Xavi, who himself has been linked with a move to Major League Soccer to see out the remainder of his career.

“He is a friend and a former team-mate,” he said.

“We will sit down and talk about what he wants and what we want.”
