Iniesta believes Arsenal skipper will join Barca

The Arsenal skipper has long been linked with a move to the Nou Camp.

“The feeling around Barcelona is that Cesc will be playing for Barcelona next season,” Iniesta told La Siete.

“I have been speaking with Xavi and all the other Barcelona boys on Spanish duty and we are very excited about him coming this summer.

“Barcelona have to agree a price with Arsenal and even though that is nothing to do with the players, I am still confident he will come this summer.

“I can understand Arsenal holding out for a top price for one of the best players in the world.

“But there’s no point keeping any player when they want to be somewhere else. We all know that Cesc’s heart is in Barcelona and after what he’s done for Arsenal I don’t think they should stand in his way.

“Cesc would never do anything that disrespected Arsene Wenger.

“The next four weeks for Cesc needs to be about Spain and hopefully in that time Barcelona and Arsenal can come to a deal so that Cesc can come home.”
