David Villa admits speaking with Barcelona ace Xavi about New York City FC

New York City FC star David Villa hopes they can convince Barcelona ace Xavi about a MLS move.

The pair won the Champions League together at Barca.

"I talk a lot with Xavi. The only thing I said is that I wish he could come here to the United States," said the NYCFC captain.

"But he is fine in Barcelona."

Villa added: "I am very happy. I did not expect to see so many people come to our stadium."
