thumbnail Hello,

The experienced playmaker's representative has claimed his client is not interested in leaving his boyhood club despite the French side showing an interest in the player

Barcelona midfielder Xavi is not interested in joining Paris Saint-Germain, according to the player's agent.

Spanish sources claimed on Thursday that PSG were keen to take advantage of the uncertainty surrounding the future of coach Pep Guardiola at the club and secure the services of the highly-rated midfielder.

It was reported that the cash-rich club were willing to meet Xavi's €80 million release clause, but the Spain international's agent has ruled out a move away from Camp Nou.

"Xavi is under a contract with Barcelona until 2014 and he has no plans to leave the club," Ivan Corretja told RMC Sport.

The 32-year-old, who made his debut for Barca's first team in 1998, has made 30 competitive appearances to date for the club in 2011-12.

Since November, Goal.com has been publishing exclusive extracts from Graham Hunter's highly-anticipated new book, 'Barca: The Making of the Greatest Team in the World'. The very last extract looks at Andres Iniesta's risky return from injury in the 2009 Champions League Final and how he was described by Wayne Rooney as the 'best midfielder in the world'.
