Barcelona legend Xavi has named three players he would sign if he was to manage his old club. 

In January, Xavi turned down the offer to replace Ernesto Valverde at the club and Quique Setien took the job.  

Xavi currently manages Qatari side Al-Sadd, but speculations claiming he could return to Camp Nou as a manager. 

In an interview with SPORT, Xavi named three players he would like to sign for Barcelona. 

“I’d sign wingers, like Neymar,” Xavi said. “I don’t know if he’d fit in in terms of social reasons, but as a player I have no doubt he would be a spectacular signing.”

“Barcelona already have players who can play inside, but lack wingers like Bayern have. They don’t need a lot of new faces. [Borussia Dortmund’s] Jadon Sancho, [Bayern Munich’s] Serge Gnabry.”
