Barcelona's Xavi has close ties to Man Utd

Barcelona midfielder Xavi admits he has strong ties with Manchester United.

DiarioSport says if Xavi was ever to seek a move away from Barca, he'd welcome the chance to play for United.

"United are one of the world's most respected clubs," said Xavi, "and one of my favourites."

It was against United - and at Old Trafford - that Xavi made his European debut.
