Xavi: Ribery should join Barca

13 July 2009 07:36
Xavi has urged Barcelona target Franck Ribery to join him in an all-star line-up at the Spanish and European champions next season. The France star has been linked with Barca, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United during a summer of intense transfer speculation. Bayern are adamant that the 26-year-old winger is not for sale, but that has not stopped the Barcelona captain from anticipating his potential arrival at the Camp Nou. "It would be a privilege to play with him," said Xavi of the £40million-rated midfielder. "I'm not the one who has to decide, but if you have to make an effort to get Ribery, I would."
