Barcelona superstar Xavi has admitted that playing in the Premier League is an attractive proposition, reports BBC Sport. 

In fact, the Spanish veteran, who has starred at Barcelona throughout his entire career, has insisted that Liverpool are a 'special' team. 

Liverpool move? 

Xavi, now at 34, now seems extremely unlikely to make a move to England's elite division, but it remains to be seen as to whether he will retire at the Nou Camp. 

However, he's been full of praise for Liverpool and England's elite division, as he said:  "The Premier League is a very attractive. Liverpool, for example, is a team that has something special - the stadium, the fans, everything.

"But I always prioritise Barcelona - it's my life, it's my world. I am lucky and wouldn't change it for anything.

Xavi also highlighted Matt Le Tissier, who enjoyed a fine career at Southampton, as a special case, with a number of players moving from club-to-club in the modern game. 

"Matt Le Tissier never left Southampton, so I think it was a good thing for him, however nowadays there are few cases of this. But I have had the luck of being with Barcelona for so many years."

Liverpool focus 

There's no doubt about it, Liverpool fans would have loved to have Xavi at their club when he was in his prime, but it certainly seems unlikely that he will ever complete a move to Anfield. 

Reds fans will currently be hoping that their own midfield stars step up to the plate after a disappointing start to the season. Brendan Rodgers' side are next in action against on November 23 as they travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace.
