Xavi ready to stay with Barcelona

Xavi is ready to stay with Barcelona this season.

The midfielder had been in talks with Manchester City's MLS club New York City FC.

But AS says the 34-year-old has spoken to new Barcelona boss Luis Enrique and has accepted his new role in the squad.

Although he will no longer be a certain starter, he feels that Barça remain his best option and believes he is still up to the demands of a top-level league.
