The agent of Barcelona midfielder Aliaksandr Hleb has confirmed his client will return to Barcelona this summer and said he intends to prove his worth to the Liga champions.
“Hleb will return to Barca and do everything to prove to everyone he can play with the best clubs in the world,” Oliver Mintzlaff told TuttoMercatoWeb.
The former Arsenal midfielder failed to settle in Spain following his 2008 move to Catalonia and spent this season on loan with his former club Stuttgart in Germany.
“He still has two years left on his contract and is ready to return to the club as soon as possible,” Mintzlaff added.
The 29-year-old has been linked with a return to the Emirates with reports suggesting Barca will offer him to the Gunners as part of a deal to take Cesc Fabregas to the Camp Nou.
