The agent of Xavi has revealed Barcelona are keen to tie him to a new deal.

Xavi continues to flourish in midfield alongside Andres Iniesta so it is little wonder representative Ivan Corretja hinted Barcelona want to extend his deal.

"Last Friday the club sent us its intention to renew the contract because they want Xavi to sign a new deal, given that the current one ends in 2014," Corretja said to Esport3.

"Therefore it is normal that we begin to talk about these issues because in June it would be too late."
