It looks more and more likely this morning that Arsenal’s Cesc Fabregas will leave the Emirates this summer to join Spanish giants Barcelona.
Fabregas, 23, recently admitted that he would love the chance to play for Barca and that playing for the Catalan club is a dream he would like to fulfil.
With the World Cup only a matter of weeks away now, Fabregas has stated that he wants his future sorted one way or the other before the big kick-off in South Africa on the 11th of June.
Several Barcelona players, including the likes of Lionel Messi and Xavi have previously said that they would love to see Fabregas arrive at the Camp Nou this summer and judging by reports in today’s papers, they won’t have to wait long to see it become a reality.
There is talk this morning that a deal to take Fabregas to Barca may be completed some time next week with the La Liga champions prepared to offer Arsenal £35 million and Yaya Toure for their captain.
Another rumour which I read this morning was that Barca were ready to offer Zlatan Ibrahimovic in exchange for Fabregas but to be perfectly honest, I can’t see that happening.
I am sure no Arsenal fan can blame Fabregas if he does want to leave the club. No silverware in 5 years simply isn’t good enough for a player like Fabregas and I personally believe a move to Barcelona would do him the world of good. He is still very young and there is no doubt that his best years are still very much ahead of him.
