London: Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta has told Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas that there is plenty of room for him in the Spanish football team.
Iniesta and Xavi form a deadly central partnership that has been the platform for Barcelona’s triumph in both La Liga and the Champions League, but Iniesta has no fear of Fabregas joining the party.
“I do not believe the possible arrival of Cesc will affect Xavi and me. I think all three of us can play in the same 11. It remains a matter between Barca and Arsenal. But we want Cesc to play with us,” said Iniesta.
“He will make us a better team, not only in Spain, but also in Europe. It is logical that Barcelona are looking at new players, because it’s always necessary to improve the squad and win even more trophies,” he added.
According to reports, Barcelona has offered 25 million pounds plus striker Bojan Krkic and midfielder Thiago in part-exchange for Fabregas.
