"There was always talk United or Chelsea or City and Arsenal wanted to sign me, but never anything concrete," Xavi told The Sun. "My thinking was always clear. I am such a Barcelona fan, so my first, second and third option is always Barca.
"I never thought of leaving like Cesc Fabregas, who went to Arsenal. I want to be here forever. If I am not at Barcelona, I will always be thinking of Barca. If I had played for City, United, Arsenal or Chelsea, I'd keep asking what is going on at Barca - my club.
"All the big English clubs know getting Xavi is impossible. They know Xavi is a fan of Barcelona, he won't come."
Xavi has won seven La Liga titles, three Champions Leagues, two Club World Cups and two Copa del Reys with Barca.
