With David Villa already in camp, Barcelona is pushing hard to bring in another high-profile member of the World Cup champions from Spain.
Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas is being pursued by Barca and coach Pep Guardiola, who has re-signed for another year with the Catalan club, addressed the issue on Monday.
Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola said, "I understand Mr. Benger wants him. Not only Barca wants Cesc Fabregas. All the English teams would like to get him. Real Madrid also wants him as I understand. He is a high-level player, young, so it´s understandable that he is wanted here."
Guardiola has had a great run at the helm of Barcelona since taking over, winning 7 trophies in charge.
New president Sandro Rosell and his board took the helm on July 1 and have set about re-organizing the club's finances, and when asked about his relationship with the new president, Guardiola was clear.
Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola said, "I had a really good relationship with president Laporta. I had the chance to train the second and then the first team. And with president Rossell it´s the same thing. He wanted to give me continuity. He talked about stability and I said Stability is not something given by a coach. It´s given by the institution, the club and, especially, by its leaders."
