Xavi: Riyad Mahrez good enough for Barcelona

Barcelona legend Xavi says Leicester City ace Riyad Mahrez could play for his old club.

Xavi believes Mahrez is good enough to play alongside the likes of Neymar and Lionel Messi.

"Mahrez is good enough to play for Barcelona, but I am pleased he decided to stay with Leicester," Xavi said in an interview with Shortlist.

"He clearly must have had options, but if Leicester had lost their best player after such a big achievement it would have been a shame. It will be interesting to see how him and Leicester perform in Europe this season."
