What the Hell with Hobbit Hleb?

Alexander Hleb has hinted that former Arsenal team-mate Cesc Fabregas could join him at Barcelona.

Days before Hleb left the Premier League for La Liga he hit out at Fabregas, calling him "selfish", in the same interview that he lambasted Gunners coach Arsene Wenger.

Now the Belarus international is ready to incur the wrath of Wenger again as he attempts to lure Fabregas back to the side he left five years ago.

"Cesc Fabregas explained a lot of things to me about this club," Hleb told Barca TV. "His time in the academy with players like (Gerard) Pique, (Lionel) Messi and so on.

"He loves this club. Now he's at Arsenal, but who knows if in the future he'll come back to Barca?

"He is my best friend at Arsenal, together with (Mathieu) Flamini."

Hleb is looking forward to linking up with another former Arsenal hero - Thierry Henry - and meeting the rest of his new team-mates.

"He's my friend," he continued. "We spent two years together. We understand each other and I'm very pleased to be back with him.

"The others? I know all of them because I've seen them on television and of course I like the way all of them play.
