Panathinaikos midfielder Gilberto Silva is convinced former Arsenal teammate Cesc Fabregas will move to Barcelona.

Gilberto is in Barcelona this week for their Champions League clash.

He helped the Spain international come through the ranks in north London and was delighted to see the 23-year-old lift the World Cup this summer once Brazil had been dumped out by Holland in the quarter-final stage.

"I was very happy for him," said the 33-year-old. "He is a great player and a good guy. I wish him well at Arsenal, but sooner or later he will return to Barcelona."
