Cesc Fabregas insists he will not try and persuade former teammate Robin van Persie to leave Arsenal and join him at Barcelona.
Speaking to El Mundo Deportivo, the 24-year-old midfielder revealed how he is enjoying life back at Camp Nou after making his long-awaited return last summer.
Fabregas admits he is in regular contact with the Gunners captain - as well as a number of other players he used to play alongside at the Emirates Stadium - but says he has no intention to sway Van Persie's decision surrounding his long-term future.
The Dutch striker has entered the final 18 months of his Arsenal contract, and is yet to open negotiations with Arsene Wenger over a new deal - leading to speculation Van Persie could follow Fabregas out of north London this summer.
"I talk to him but not about Barca," Fabregas told El Mundo Deportivo. "He is an Arsenal player and he knows what is best for him.
"I only wish the best of luck for him before he makes whatever decision he will make."
Fabregas' move back to his native Spain was a long drawn out saga that ran on and on for a number of months, before he took the matter into his own hands and sacrificed a reported €5 million in wages to force through a transfer.
The Barca star holds no grudges against Arsenal or Wenger over the way the issue was handled, and is adamant that the sacrifice he made was worthwhile.
"Everything that I did to come here and all the help that I received from Barca, from the coach, the president and my team-mates has been worth the effort," he added.
