World Cup winner Xavi has declared that Spain teammate Cesc Fabregas wants to leave Arsenal for Barcelona.
The Nou Camp midfield dynamo has revealed that the Arsenal captain wants to return to his first club after spending so much time in the company of the Barca boys during the World Cup.
Xavi told The Sun: “I am not sure if Cesc will move this summer although I know he wants to. Arsenal cannot keep hold of him for more than another 12 months.
“His heart and his head is in Barcelona and it would make sense for them to sell him now.
“They could then use the money on a player, or players, who want to be at the club long term, rather than keep a player whose heart is somewhere else, no matter how good he is.
“Cesc only knows success with Spain, and that is not right for one of the best central midfield players in the world.
“Major tournaments only come around every two years and Cesc is a player who should be winning things domestically season after season.”
