Xavi warns Barcelona against signing Aubameyang, Mane

Barcelona legend, Xavi Hernandez has advised the club not to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Sadio Mane.

Both players are currently rated as some of the best players in the English Premier League.

However, Xavi believes their style of player does not match what Barcelona requires.

He said: “Mane and Aubameyang can kill you in open space. But Barcelona need players who know how to move in small spaces.

“I am thinking about player who would adapt to Barcelona and it’s not easy to find one. Samuel Eto’o was perfect as is Luis Suarez right now.” my

He also spoke about the likelihood of a Neymar return to Barcelona from Paris St Germain.

“Football-wise, he is among the three or five best in the world. I hope that he returns to Barcelona,” Xavi added.

“I was his teammate. He would add a lot. A positive character. It would be an extraordinary signing to become a difference-maker.”
