Reports in Spain have stated that Barca have enquired about signing the La Roja star.
Barca vice-president Rafa Yuste confirmed as such during the week, stating: "Ferran is a great player, like others. We are working with discretion to seek the best for the club.
"We simply have friends at City, there is a very good relationship and Reverter has paid a courtesy visit.
However, Xavi was not prepared to address the speculation when speaking his side's 2-1 win over Villarreal on Sunday.
He told reporters: "It's not the right time to talk about signings. Not right after the game, which will give us a great boost of morale."
