Barca supremo confirms Cesc interest

Laporta wants the Arsenal midfielder to re-join his former club, after leaving Barca six years ago.

“Cesc Fabregas has the Barcelona DNA in his body and we know that he wants to play for this club,” Laporta told Cadena Cope.

“At the moment he is the leader at Arsenal and a very important player for them. But Cesc is wanted by me, by the coach Pep Guardiola and by the sport director Txiki Begiristain.

“We are concentrating all of our efforts on it, but at the same time we have a lot of respect for Arsenal.

“We have positive relations with Arsenal so it will not be an easy topic to talk to them about.”
