Although Cesc Fabregas has stated he wants to stay at Barcelona and fight for his place, it seems that is by no means certain that Barca want to keep him!
According to the Daily Mail, Cesc could still be sold, and if so, Arsenal will be favourites:
Publicly, the Spaniard maintains he wants to stay at the Nou Camp, but doubts over how he fits into manager Tito Vilanova’s plans after being regularly overlooked for big games last season has left Fabregas in two minds.
And the Gunners are poised to strike should the midfielder decide his future lies elsewhere with the Emirates Stadium club being kept updated on developments regarding the 26-year-old’s future as the summer progresses.
A deal to re-sign Fabregas will be relatively straightforward to conclude. As part of the deal that took Fabregas back to Spain, Arsenal secured a £25million first-option clause as part of the transfer.
Should Barca decide to sell Fabregas, the Gunners would have first refusal on the midfielder at a fixed price of £25million.
Is this just a pipe dream, or do you think it could really happen?
