Xavi wants Fabregas at Barca

Cesc Fabregas

Barcelona midfielder Xavi has told Cesc Fabregas he would love to see him back at the Nou Camp and has no doubt the Arsenal man would be a star with the Catalan giants.

Fabregas has long been linked with a return to Barca, the club where he learned his trade as a youngster before moving to the Gunners seven years ago and they are still hopeful of signing him this summer despite having a 35million euros offer for the Spain international rejected this week.

"I would love him to come. I have already told him so," Xavi told Barca TV.

"He's a footballer made up of Barca DNA.

"I don't have any doubt that Cesc would triumph at Barca."
