Cesc to Barca rumours re-surface

Barcelona midfielder Xavi Hernandez has re-ignited the Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona debate by insisting the pair could form a successful partnership at Camp Nou.

Following the continued speculation of a transfer, it had been suggested that the pair, plus Andres Iniesta, are too similar to play in the same team.

Arsenal skipper Fabregas is known to favour a move back to his boyhood club in the near future and it looked almost certain the move would be made this summer, until Arsene Wenger put the mockers on any Barca offer.

However, despite the Gunners captain committing his future to the Emirates Stadium club, it is a widely held view that Fabregas will make his dream switch.

It had looked as though, with Javier Mascherano making a big money move in August, the rumours had died down for a while but the Arsenal player has once again been the subject of a question asked to a Barcelona player.

And Xavi told “I’m always saying this: Cesc has Barça in his genes, he’s grown up with our philosophy at La Masia (the club’s training facilities).

“It used to make me laugh when people said we couldn’t play together for the national team. It’s quite the opposite, we could combine together with our eyes closed. He’s a fantastic player and has proved that at Arsenal and with Spain.”

Wenger laughed off a £30 million bid from the Catalan club last summer but they are still intent on bringing him back to his homeland very soon.
