“We get on very well on and off the pitch. For me he is like a brother. We call each other a lot to talk about things,” Hleb told El Mundo Deportivo.
“He tells me he misses me at Arsenal and, without wanting to detract from anyone, I would love it if he came to Barca to be a part of all this.
“I don’t stop insisting that he should return to Barca and he doesn’t stop insisting that he is very happy at Arsenal and with Arsene Wenger.
“I will keep boring him until he changes his mind. If in the end he listens to me, I think it would be great for Barcelona.”
Hleb joined Barcelona from Arsenal in the summer.
