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.
"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."
