After training Ez Abde and using him in a competitive game [v Arsenal], Xavi is crazy about keeping the winger and feels he has matured since going on loan, per the reliable Matteo Moretto.
However, Barcelona are prepared to sell Abde in this transfer window as they expect to get multiple offers for his signature.
Barcelona could sell Abde for a price between €15 and €25m if they get an offer. Some teams in La Liga have already shown interest.
It is believed that Xavi will not stand in the way of Abde’s sale despite his admiration of the player as he understands the club’s financial problems.
Abde spent last season on loan at Osasuna where he registered six goals and two assists in 34 games. He also helped them play in the Copa Del Rey final which meant qualification to play in Europe.
