Xavi’s team see him very favourably and believe he would bring experience, versatility and immediate performance.
Talks are now ongoing between the club and the player’s entourage to understand whether a deal is feasible.
A move is understood to be difficult and will require Barcelona to sell players in order to take on his salary.
Although, he is wanting just a one-year contract with the idea of spending one more season in Europe before returning to Rosario Central in 2023.
