With the winter transfer window bringing plenty of rumours, the 33-year old is being heavily linked with a possible shift across the Atlantic, but a MLS source told the NY Post that the Spain international is likely to remain at the Nou Camp for the time being.
"He's a wonderful player and a great person. Of course [they] would love to see him at New York Red Bulls," the league source said.
"But he is under contract at FC Barcelona for the foreseeable future, so it is a hypothetical discussion."
Xavi recently signed a new deal that will keep him with the Catalan giants until the summer of 2016.
