Xavi Hernandez has been playing with Barcelona for over 14 seasons and for the longest of years, he has been the dictator of the midfield for his club. Even at his 34 years of age, he is still considered to be one of the best players who plays as a central-midfielder.
A dead ball specialist at the same caliber as Italy’s Andrea Pirlo, Xavi still has a few more years left in him before hanging up his boots. David Beckham wants Xavi Hernandez to be his 1st signing for his MLS franchise.
The Spanish midfielder has a contract with Barcelona which expires in 2016 and the Miami franchise of Beckham is expected to be in the league in 2017 so if everything goes according to plans, Xavi would have no problem in leaving Barcelona when his contract ends and play for the last few years of his career in the MLS.
Xavi has been a consistent performer for Barcelona since 1999 and his world class passing is something that Beckham wants to bring to his Miami based franchise. If Xavi does decide to make a move to the MLS, it would not be a very surprising thing as a lot of veteran players are opting on switching to play the last few years of their career on a place where the pressure is not as big as their former clubs.
Some months ago Xavi was also being linked with New York City FC and the New York Red Bulls and while he still has not said anything regarding his future outside of Barcelona, it is highly likely that he might join a club outside of La Liga when his contract does reach its end.
