Xavi hoping Barcelona can wrap up deal quickly for Arsenal captain Cesc

Xavi hopes Barcelona can wrap up a deal for Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas quickly.

Barca failed with two bids for their former youth team midfielder last year and have reportedly had an initial offer turned down this summer as well.

But the Catalan club are likely to return with a new bid for the 24 year-old in the coming days and Xavi says his arrival would be positive for Barca.

"Competition is always good and Cesc is an extraordinary footballer," he said.

"If he comes, it will be to help out."
