But do they realise who Barcelona wants right now? Fabregas is one of Barcelona's own, a youth product of Barcelona's famed La Masia. A cule, who Barcelona want to bring back home, after his premature exit from the Nou Camp at the early age of 16.
Why does Barcelona want him when they already have two similar players in Xavi and Iniesta?
That is, honestly, a rather silly question. If the people asking this would care to see Barcelona's record over the last season, they will realise that Andres Iniesta, though a brilliant player, is highly prone to injury. He was out for spells totalling nearly three months last season. Who will play when he is injured (which, incidentally, is pretty often) ? No prizes for guessing.
