Barcelona teammate Xavi hope for Eto'o stay

Barcelona's Xavi Hernandez hopes his teammate Samuel Eto'o will not leave the club.

The Cameroon striker has been closely linked with a move to Manchester City in the past week and Xavi would love for him to remain at the Nou Camp.

"Fortunately there are intelligent people at the club. Last season everything was sorted out well," he told Sport.

"We know that he is capable of and this season we have had so much from him, he is a vital player.

"I do not know what will happen, but if it was down to the players we would consider him to be the number one priority."
