Like Liverpool, Arsenal Will Be Better Off Selling Spanish Star

By on April 28, 2011

In light of rumours that Arsenal are set to sell Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona for £35m this summer, Two Liverpool Fans sees similarities between the pending move and that of Fernando Torres to Chelsea.

Fernando Torres (British Transfer Fee Record Holder)

Signed for £50m, 1 goal in 10 appearances in the Premier League (14 including other cup fixtures).

He certainly hasn’t set the league alight, but he might certainly get that chance next year, as Fernando Torres will be fully rested for the new season, but that’s still just a maybe. Who knows?

Formerly one of the most feared strikers in the world, only to be reduced to an absolute laughing stock at Stamford Bridge.

And Liverpool? Well, with the money received from the Torres sale they’ve signed Luiz Suarez and a striker partner in Andy Carroll, whom looks like the perfect candidate to play alongside the Uruguayan. In truth, Liverpool’s form turned when they sold Fernando Torres.

Cesc Fabregas (Arsenal’s Future Biggest Sale)

Valued at £35m. This move will certainly damage Arsenal in the short term, but I think that they will certainly come out more on the positive side, especially compared to Barcelona when this move is officially finalized.

Barcelona boast midfield talents such as Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta and even the young Sergio Busquets has been turning heads since last season. It is a bit difficult to see where Fabregas fits into an already ‘perfect’ midfield, with Mascherano having a pop at it and never really settling at the Nou Camp.

Basically, it seems as though this move will probably not be the smartest move Barcelona have made in a while, as signing him would eventually result in selection headaches to come.

Arsenal will be able to use the money to reinvest in the squad (if they intend to) and potentially create a stronger unit without their captain, while Barcelona will get an often half fit midfielder in return. In the long term, Arsenal will be the benefactor of this move.

    You mean like when Liverpool sold Alonso, and it shattered the whole team for 2 years, and only now showing signs of recovery.

      This is because Rafa and Roy leaving at the transition period too. None of the players step up to back the position well.

      With Dalgish as the boss, Lucas, Spearing and Meireles played well in the midfield despite all are not signed by him. Its the change in playing style that hampered the team, not because of Alonso leaving.

    this all shit,
    Better Arsenal to sell Feb, bcs how one team can keep one player as caption who always want to leave.
    And if he goes, arsenel will not get anyone. AW will not use the money at all. Arsenal will get good profit from that.
    Liverpool is ready to sign someone, but arsenal is not going to do that.
    So if he goes its a blast for arsenal.
    But selling him is better for the club.

    He deserve some trophis. If he stays at asenal he will never win anything.

    If this move really happens, Arsene may consider to go for playmakers like Hazard or Gourcuff. But I would personally hope that Nasri signs for a long term. He ia phenomenon man after Fabregas and shouldn’t be sell of at the same time with Fabregas.

    I think Arsenal can afford to sell Fabregas because they have readymade replacement in Nasri who plays better in centre midfield position and because of Fabregas he has been played in wings. I think selling Fabregas will be blessing in disguise for Arsenal, fans may not like it but truly Fabregas doesn’t want to stay and his performances have been below par.

    it makes me sick every season when people start speculate about Cesc every time when the season comes to an end.
    why always about Cesc?its like there is this possesiveness about our Captain.
    HANDS OFF OUR CAPTAIN,he has a valid contract with Arsenal football club.
    why dont people link Rooney with Real madrid?or Messi with Chelsea?
