Xavi to Qatar then New York?

Should Xavi decide to leave Barcelona this summer, his first choice will be to join Qatari side Al Jazira.

AS report that the veteran midfielder is weighing up the possibility of staying at Camp Nou for the remainder of his current deal which expires in 2015.

Or he could go to the Middle East for one season and join the Abu Dhabi-based side.

The paper claims that whatever the World Cup-winner decides, he is likely to sign for new MLS outfit New York City FC next summer.

Sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta has refused to comment on the 34-year-old immediate future.
