Arsenal willing to let Fabregas leave for £40 million

It has been claimed today that Arsenal would be willing to let captain Cesc Fabregas leave the club if they recieve a bid of £40 million.

The Spanish international has been linked with a move to La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid for several months now, with Fabregas himself admitting that a move back to his homeland would interest him. A supposed Arsenal insider had this to say to The Sun

“Nobody at Arsenal wants to see Fabregas go but there comes a point when the money is too good to turn down. If Arsenal receive a bid in the region of £40m there will be an enormous pressure to sell.”

Personally, I would be surprised if Fabregas was playing anywhere other than the Emirates stadium next season. There is no doubt that he is one of, if not the best player currently on the books at Arsenal and I’m sure Arsene Wenger will be doing everything he can to keep him in North London for as long as possible.
