Xavi: Cesc has Barca DNA

SoccerNews in English Premier League, La Liga 6 Jun 2010


(GSM) – Barcelona playmaker Xavi remains confident that Cesc Fabregas would be a success at Barcelona if the Arsenal captain chose to return to Camp Nou.

Arsenal have already rejected an offer from Barcelona for the midfielder and are insistent that they do not want to sell the Spain international.

However, the Primera Liga champions are continuing to pursue a deal for the player who originally left the club as a 16-year-old and remain hopeful of adding Fabregas to their squad for next season.

Current Barca schemer Xavi, who is due to play alongside Fabregas for Spain at the World Cup, has already expressed his belief that the 23-year-old will be back at Camp Nou this summer.

And, if Barca are able to persuade Arsenal to sell their captain, Xavi has no doubt that Fabregas will be a hit with Pep Guardiola’s side.

“I would love him to come,” he told Barca TV. “I have already told him so.

“He’s a footballer made up of Barca DNA. I don’t have any doubt that Cesc would triumph at Barca.”

Meanwhile, despite winning a multitude of trophies during his Barca career, Xavi insists he is enjoying playing for the club as much as ever.

He added: “I am having a great time, but I can’t stop. The demands are big, everyone wants to come to Barca and the team is getting better every year.

“You have to play 10 out of 10, you have to play perfectly.”
