Pique insists Arsenal skipper Cesc belongs back at Barcelona

Gerard Pique says everyone at Barcelona wants to see Cesc Fabregas return from Arsenal.

Cesc played in the same academy team as Pique, Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta.

Pique told The Sun: "I have said before and I still do that my hope is that one day he will play for Barcelona.

"I would love to have him alongside me because as well as a good person, he is a great player.

"I would love him to be here this year or if not then next year. He would give us more.

"I haven't spoken to him recently. I don't know how Arsenal set up are economically but I do know that he is a great player and a real friend of mine and he is a Barcelona player - he has been in the youth system here and he knows what we are about. He could perform perfectly here."
