If the book makers such as paddy power, Betfair and the likes are to be believed, Arsenal are now favorites to re-sign former Captain Cesc Fabregas. The former Arsenal captain was repeatedly linked to a return to the gunners in the last summer transfer window before United were also brought into the picture but the Spanish decided to stay put in Spain. However, few weeks later, Paddy power and other book makers believe the midfielder may yet join Arsenal.
Irish company Paddy power especially has installed the gunners as favorites to sign the player at 5/6 with Manchester United a very distant second with 3/1. Cesc Fabregas is also rated 16/1 to join former boss Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich at 16/1.
Although the bookmakers are usually right when it comes to transfers as they are usually well placed but I personally can not see Fabregas returning back to Arsenal especially after we signed Mesut Ozil. I just can’t see where he will fit and he is beginning to play more and more for Barcelona which means the need to leave for first team football is no longer there.
