Barca continue to chase Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas
Fabregas is preparing for Spain's World Cup opener against Switzerland
Barcelona hope to negotiate the signing of Arsenal's Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas while he is at the World Cup.
The Gunners have already turned down a bid of about £30m from the Catalans and said they would not welcome further interest in their 23-year-old captain.
Barca's corporate director general Joan Oliver said: "Cesc has arrived in South Africa for the World Cup, but there are a lot of football people there.
"Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and Barca representatives will be there."
Oliver believes a deal can be done to bring the Spain international, who played in the youth team at the Nou Camp before moving to north London seven years ago, back to Barcelona, although he would not be drawn into when the transfer could happen.
"You can never predict when a signing will be closed," he said. "In this world, when you put a deadline on it, you always end up losing out.
"This is a three-sided affair and the third side [Arsenal] have not expressed themselves in any way.
