Xavi is trying to convince David Silva to join Al Sadd when his Manchester City contract expires, multiple sources have confirmed to ESPN.

The Al Sadd manager, who completed a deal to sign Santi Cazorla earlier this week, played with his two compatriots during the Spanish national team’s golden era from 2008-12 and plans to reunite them and form a dream duo at the team he has led since 2019.

Xavi recently lost Gabi after the former Atletico Madrid captain decided to retire and various sources have confirmed to ESPN that the Barcelona legend would like to fill that gap with Cazorla and Silva.

Silva remains quiet over his future, having announced this would be his last campaign with Pep Guardiola’s side. He was sounded out by former club Valencia and other European teams before the coronavirus pandemic disrupted football, but will not make his decision public until the end of the season, with City still in search of their first Champions League crown.

Xavi’s long-term future at Al Sadd has been under question since January, when Barcelona attempted to recruit him to replace Ernesto Valverde, but the former midfielder coach renewed his contract earlier this month and is focused on trying to make the best possible squad ahead of next season.

Other sources have confirmed to ESPN that Xavi also contacted Chelsea’s Pedro in January to try and sign him, but his former Barcelona teammate will join Roma at the end of the season.
