He revealed that he is in touch with his former coach in Barcelona, they talk, he knows what he thinks, and didn’t hesitate to make a ‘guess’, regarding which player Pep Guardiola will try to sign this summer.
At the moment the best English player there is and also one of the best in Europe is Dele Alli. I speak with Pep, and I know he thinks it is important to sign English players
Xavi Hernandez told The Sun, going on to praise the Tottenham midfielder even more;
We are looking at a very special player. Technically he is the sort of player that Pep likes, the sort of player that suits the style of game that Pep likes his teams to play
the former Barcelona captain said. As for how difficult it will be for City to ‘steal’ Alli from Tottenham;
I am sure it is not going to be a player that Tottenham will want to let go, but we know Manchester City have big resources
Xavi believes, looking rather confident that City will find a way to strike a deal, no matter if Tottenham themselves have as well the resources to keep any player they decide to keep, as long of course as the player wants to stay at White Heart Lane.
