"I speak with Pep and I know he thinks it is important to sign English players.," Xavi told The Sun. "At the moment the best English player - and also one of the best in Europe - is Dele Alli. We are looking at a very special player.
"Technically he is the sort of player that Pep likes, the sort of player that suits the style of game that Pep likes to play.
I am sure Tottenham will not want to let him go but we know Manchester City have big resources.
