Xavi: 'I am not leaving Barcelona'

Barcelona midfielder Xavi denies that he will leave the club in the summer.

Barcelona midfielder Xavi has insisted that he will not leave the club at the end of the season.

The Spaniard made his 700th appearance for the Catalan outfit in their 3-0 win over Malaga on Sunday evening, but he has been widely linked with a move to the MLS.

However, such talk has been denied by the 34-year-old, who has revealed that he wants to 'finish his contract' with Barcelona.

"I've been here for many years, there are a lot of memories and we've won a lot of titles with this generation of footballers, one look back and you realise that we've really enjoyed ourselves," he told the club's official website.

"I think we all saw a great Barca team here, we're on form, we enjoyed ourselves and we feel good. I'm not going to Qatar or New York, I want to finish my contract with Barca. I'm staying here, I feel important and useful."

Xavi has been with the Spanish side since 1991.
