Real Madrid, Barcelona to pounce for Liverpool's Xabi

In the wake of his row with Reds boss Rafa Benitez after he refused to fly with the squad to Milan yesterday, Real and Barca are ready to move for the Spain international, says The Sun.

Xabi refused to fly out to Milan with the rest of the squad because his wife is due to give birth and Benitez said: "We could not wait and had to make a decision. You cannot wait and wait and wait for any player. There comes a time when you have to decide and make use of your squad."
