Xavi: Fabregas will join us soon

The Camp Nou star told RAC1 that he remains positive of seeing his international team-mate join the Spanish champions before August 31, after a summer of intense speculation regarding his future.

"We look forward to Cesc joining, and it seems that it is in the final stages now," the 31-year-old admitted. "We hope that the signing goes through as it is what we all want.

"It's a matter of agreement between Barca and Arsenal, but I am optimistic and I think Cesc will arrive at the club."

Arsenal are said to have already rejected a €35 miliion offer for their captain from the European champions.

Xavi was then quizzed about the upcoming Supercopa clash on August 14 with arch-rivals Real Madrid, and the World Cup winner spoke confidently of his side's chances.

"At home we have the upper hand and we are the benchmark in football, but I do not wish to talk too much about Real Madrid."

Barcelona made a return to winning ways on Saturday, after a comprehensive 2-0 win over Mexican outfit Club America, and will now prepare for their Super Cup encounter in the coming week.
