PSG intends to take Xavi with petrodollars

The player knows the bid and the interest of Milan.

Xavi Hernández has a proposal to leave Barcelona at the end of this season. The multimillion-dollar offer comes from the Parque de los Príncipes in Paris. There governs 70 percent of the shares of the Sheikh Tamim bin PSG Hamad Al Thani. The sheik has that goal between the eyes and make every effort to convince the international environment, under contract with Barcelona until 2014 (with the implementation of clauses could be extended without problems until 2016). The intention is to continue leading Xavi culé project waiting for Pep Guardiola gives the final yes to Sandro Rosell.

The real interest was made weeks ago when discreetly approached the football environment. If the number of zeros of the offer, Xavi had already packed their bags, but their moral commitment to the Barcelona apparently makes everything else is negotiable. Of course, Leonardo (set Paris sporting director) is very clear that it will get complicated footballer himself, since to do so, you should only pay 80 million euros to Barcelona, the price of its clause.

In Milan, in addition, they also look fondly to Xavi, but the starting price of the player makes it very difficult to move to San Siro. Could be rossonero seasons ago, but failed in the attempt. Without Andrea Pirlo, Milan feels orphaned and Xavi would be the best helmsman.

"Our strategy is to make the PSG one of the biggest clubs in the world." That was one of the reflections of bin Hamad Al Thani Tamim on CNN yesterday. It engaged the services of Ancelotti (technical), Leonardo (sports director) and Pastore, Gameiro, Menez or Motta. (via AS)
