United’s Bid To Help Arsenal Get Fabregas?

Cesc-Fabregas-lit-up-the--007Cesc Fabregas’ future at Barcelona has come under scrutiny with reports linking him back to the Premier League with Manchester United and Arsenal.

The Premier League champions had a £25 million offer rejected last week with the player insisting he wanted to stay at Barcelona, but the club have ignored the comments with an improved £30 million plus add-ons deal lodged earlier today.

Arsene Wenger is also monitoring Fabregas’ situation at Barcelona with a bid ready and waiting if the club do part ways with the player. The Gunners have first refusal on the midfielder, as stipulated in his transfer to the Catalans two years ago. Believe among Arsenal fans is that United’s bid for Cesc will only make it easier for Arsenal to sign their former captain as Barca accepting any bid will mean Arsenal can activate their first refusal right which is fixed at £25 million.

For the time being, the midfielder is happy to remain at the Nou Camp but should Arsenal confirm their interest with a bid, he could be persuaded to move on. The Mirror claim that Fabregas has told close friends that he would only go back to Arsenal should he leave Barcelona, ruling out a move to Manchester United.

David Moyes is still confident that he can bring Fabregas to Old Trafford but the midfielder’s loyalties could get in the way of a transfer. The midfielder views Wenger as a father and would prefer to be reunited with him rather than a move to Manchester.

His first preference would be to remain at Barcelona and help them to be successful. Xavi’s career could be coming to an end in the next few years and Fabregas wants to be ready to take on his role.

  1. I wonder; what will have changed to attract Fabregas back! I do not see any attractive ambition from Arsenal. Similar stories, similar situation and similar mode of miss from potential signings!! Let us wait and see but I can not see anything to be proud in terms of football.

    1. In one way I agree 100% – personally I cannot believe that the Arsenal board are contemplating a new contract for Wenger before seeing how the season develops – but would the signing of Fabregas on top of the players already at the club (i.e.not a a replacement) not insinuate that something was finally developing?

      However I believe Cesc will stay at Barca – if he did come back to Arsenal I think we can wave Cazorla goodbye, thus the club will continue to simply stay static and Wenger will once again be chasing his coverted 4th place trophy.
