Xavi backed for New York Red Bulls

Barcelona midfielder Xavi would be welcomed at MLS side New York Red Bulls, according to Ruben Bover.

- LIVE: Transfer Talk

Xavi, 34, has been tipped to leave the Camp Nou this summer, although his current contract expires in 2016.

The Spain midfielder has previously been linked with a move to the MLS, and his compatriot Bover has said talk of a transfer has resurfaced.

"In New York they are talking about the arrival of Xavi," AS reports Bover as telling La Xarxa.

"But until it becomes official I don't believe it. You hear so many things. But it would be great to see him play in his final years."

Bover added: "If Xavi comes it will be a real treat for the league, for the fans, the clubs. The league continues to grow and I would recommend that he comes to New York Red Bulls.

"Coming to New York, or to [New York City FC] he will love. I'm sure he will love New York. I don't know about Seattle.

"The experience in New York is very good, so worth it, highly recommended.

"When you join a club in a city like New York, playing with people like Thierry Henry and others, I always dreamt of something like it when I was a child.

"Major League Soccer is a level that is rising. It's a fast and physical league and it's growing and it shows. There are people coming to the stadium."
