Xavi hopes for quick Cesc deal

11 Jun 2010 - 08:01:43

Spain and Barcelona midfield ace Xavi is confident that he will soon be joined at the Camp Nou by international colleague Cesc Fabregas.

The 23-year-old is expected to leave Arsenal to head home to Barca at some point this summer and Xavi is hopeful that a deal can be agreed sooner rather than later.

He told reporters at the World Cup finals in South Africa: "He wants to come here and is talking to the club about that.

"I have always said that he has the Barca DNA and he should be confident there will be a solution soon. He should play for Barca and it has to be now.

"If it's not now, it will be a little later, but I hope Cesc can come to Barcelona as soon as possible.

"He is hopeful and he wants to come to Barca, but he is calm and focused on the World Cup, hoping there will be a solution."
