Barcelona pair Xavi and Victor Valdes both claim that Cesc Fabregas has set his heart on a move back to Camp Nou.

It is little secret that the Arsenal captain would like to return to the club where he spent his boyhood years before switching to England in 2003.

And Xavi believes Fabregas is 'suffering' because he has yet to secure his dream move, while Valdes thinks his fellow Spain international is 'excited' at the potential of the transfer.

"Cesc is excited about coming back here and I'd like that," Valdes said at the launch of his official website.

"His way of playing would mean he'd have no problems adapting and he'd bring a lot of quality."

Barcelona star midfielder Xavi reckons his compatriot, Fabregas, has made his preference of a return to the European champions clear.

Xavi told Barcelona's official website: "I spoke to Cesc in Ibiza and he said he was suffering because he wanted to come.

"It's more like, he did everything he could to come and wants to leave Arsenal - although he made it clear that now everything depends on the selling club."
