Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is interested in signing Xavi from La Blaugrana for $107 million. The club has expressed an interest in paying Barca the $106 million in the buyout class to sign Xavi.
Yoosof Farah (fellow BR writer) wrote an interesting article on why Xavi should sign with PSG. While there are reasons for Xavi to move to PSG, I think Xavi should remain with Barca.
Why Xavi Should Stay At Barca
Xavi remains under contract with Barca until 2014. He has an option to renew with the club until 2016.
Xavi can continue to contribute to La Blaugrana as a player and afterwards. He has been with Barca since an early age with a style compatible with the team.
Xavi could become another Fernando Torres with a move to PSG. The move could hurt his career in world football.
Speculations Affect Club
The speculations around Guardiola and Xavi could affect the remaining La Liga and UEFA Champions League season for Barca. It is better to leave the subject alone until there is an official press conference.
