Barcelona boss Xavi Hernandez said not a single player has said no to the club since he was appointed coach after being asked about a recent meeting with Erling Haaland.

Borussia Dortmund striker Haaland reportedly met with Barca manager Xavi in Munich last Tuesday, where he is recovering from an injury that has kept him out of action since January.

Xavi has neither confirmed nor denied the meeting, with ESPN reporting that Barca, along with Real Madrid and Manchester City, are among the teams vying for the Norway striker's signature this summer.

"Is that confirmation [of the meeting] or a question?" Xavi laughed in a news conference on Wednesday when asked what feeling he got from Haaland about his willingness to move to Camp Nou.

"Look, it is always a good moment to sign for Barcelona. For me, this is the best club in the world. And, honestly, not a single player has said no to Barcelona since I have been here [as coach]."

Asked how he convinces players to sign, Xavi added: "You explain how we play and how we train. You tell them that here they will touch the ball 40 times a game instead of 20.

"I try to let them know about the club and about how wonderful the city is. I transmit that it is a golden opportunity for any player and the style of play will make them a better player."
