Andres Iniesta has won everything there is to win in Spain and at international level by the age of 26 - but he wants the titles to keep coming.

And Iniesta would love to see Cesc Fabregas join him at Barcelona, believing the Arsenal midfielder would take the team to a new level.

Asked about possibly being joined at the Nou Camp by the man who laid on the pass for his winning goal in Sunday's World Cup final, Iniesta said: "Let's hope so."

He added: "Everybody has come out and spoken of the desire we have for him to be with us next season. We would be delighted. Not just because he is a team-mate and a friend, but because it would be great for the club.

"His arrival would give us a huge jump up in quality and he would play his part to help us stay up there competing in the big competitions. We would love him to be here."

Arsenal have already told Barcelona they do not want to sell Fabregas, however the 23-year-old is keen to return to the club where he played at youth level.

He would be joining a club who seem certain to win more major trophies in the coming seasons.

As well as winning the World Cup and European Championship with Spain, Iniesta has also won the Champions League twice with Barcelona, as well as picking up four Primera Division titles, a Copa del Rey, the Spanish and European Supercups and a World Club Cup.

But Iniesta is savouring the tasks ahead, and said: "The next season starts and we start from zero again.

"Football is like that; there are new challenges, things to achieve, and footballers do not settle for what they have - there are new titles to be won and new desires."
