Wenger was unhappy after the 31-year-old said that Fabregas is suffering as he waits for the two clubs to strike a deal.
"It seems absurd to me," said Xavi. "I was only acting in the interest of Cesc and Barca.
"But that's that and I really don't want to get into a war of words with Wenger. I didn't want to offend anyone."
Barca manager Pep Guardiola said yesterday that the Gunners had agreed to negotiate on the sale of the 24-year-old.
