Xavi could soon find himself joined at Old Trafford by team-mate Pedro, who has been linked with a Manchester United switch ever since revealing doubts over his Barcelona future in the January window.
The Spaniard has been part of the Nou Camp tapestry for some time, having racked up four La Liga titles and two Champions League titles since his debut back in 2008.
Along the way, the 26 year-old has amassed 87 goals in 267 appearances across all competitions, never recording below double figures in a single campaign, and has also racked up decent return of 14 goals in 38 outings for Spain, helping La Roja win a World Cup in 2010 and European Championship in 2012.
Pedro has been in fine form this season, with 15 goals and eight assists in 36 La Liga appearances.
But with Alexis Sanchez, Lionel Messi and Neymar undoubtedly Barcelona’s front three of the future, the Spaniard has recently admitted that he’ll ‘assess’ his options in the summer. Unless the next Nou Camp boss can convince Pedro otherwise, a departure at the end of the season is looking increasingly likely.
Capable of playing on either flank, exceptionally quick and famed for his mixture industriousness and potency in front of goal, the Barcelona goalscorer has a lot to offer the Red Devils in the final third.
Furthermore, he comes with a price-tag of just £25million according to the tabloids – an absolute steal for a two-time Champions League winner still in his peak years.
