Andrey Arshavin Again Expressed his Wish to Join Barcelona

Andrey Arshavin has once again revealed his interest to play for Barcelona sometime in future. The Russian star is currently playing for English club Arsenal where he joined in 2009 from Zenit Saint Petersburg. He was even linked with a move to the Catalan side even at the time of his move to Arsenal. A Barcelona fan from childhood, Arshavin has now said that playing for the Spanish giant “would be the pinnacle of his career”.

Arshavin said that Barcelona is the best team in the world and he liked their style of football. However, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger does not want to bother much about what Arshavin said. He knows that Barcelona is also eyeing his captain Cesc Fabregas and Gael Clichy.

Well, there is nothing wrong if you want to play for your dream team one day, but the thing is that a move to Barcelona could be suicidal for Arshavin who has been the automatic choice for Arsenal first eleven. At Barcelona, playing in the first eleven would be that easy for the 28-year-old Russian international. Barcelona already has the players like Xavi and Lionel Messi alongside some other quality midfielders. Naturally, Arshavin would have to sit out on the bench for many matches at Barcelona. Now, if he still wants to go to Spain, then it is up to him, but he would definitely miss the media coverage that he is getting playing for Arsenal.
