£58m Fabregas Off- United’s De Gea Deal Done – Aguero Staying

By on May 25, 2011

Yes, your suspicions from the headline are true – another summer, and more rumours concerning the Arsenal captains future. Will he stay, will he go? Well the answer to that is almost impossible to know, with pretty much the same rumours being thrown about – namely, the one that Barcelona will return in an attempt to persuade the Spaniard away from Arsenal.

This time, Manchester City are involved, just like they are with every other possible player they can be, with Mancini reported to be ready to offer an unbelievable £58 million, according to The People. Of course any deal would need the support of the Abu Dhabi group which owns the club, and apparently, Mancini has that backing for this particular move.

With City’s money, absolutely any player can be linked to them at any price and be a believable rumour, so this rumour – although potentially rubbish is, with City’s audacity and money is certainly believable – though I cannot see Fabregas wanting to go to City.

He wants to play football, and preferably at Barcelona. That dream of his has however been stalled for a while by Arsenal, and now Barcelona are the ones stalling, with the Barcelona director of football saying of the proposed Fabregas deal:

“Right now, everything is dead regarding a transfer.”

That certainly will please Arsenal fans, who no doubt would despise seeing their captain leave the club, especially to the side who have been a massive pain for the past few summers.

Moving on to Sergio Aguero, and only yesterday, I said on the blog that he had announced his desire to leave Athletico Madrid. The situation however was made slightly awkward when his club said today that he would be going nowhere, with Madrid ready to force the Argentinian to honour his contract:

“We are not going to change our thinking. We will not sell or trade for Aguero. If anyone wants to know something new, ask him directly.”

“There is no getting around it. El Kun has a signed contract. He has shown his desire to leave, but we say the same thing. We do not want to sell. We respect his decision, but he also has to respect ours. He has a commitment to us.”

“In his recent statements I heard him say he had no intention of leaving. I do not know how we will address this issue, but this is not the end of the world.”

And as Athletico fight to keep hold of one star, they have conceded defeat on another, David de Gea. Manchester United will apparently announce the signing of him on Monday – two days after the Champions League final.

Guillem Balague said that a deal between the clubs was struck two months ago, but now De Gea has finally agreed to a deal – initially reluctant to leave his home club.

£18.3 million has apparently sealed the deal for United, who have now replaced Edwin van der Sar, how successfully is another matter, and will be found out next season. He has though, a tough job in replacing the big Dutchman who is universally popular at Old Trafford.

Tell me what you think!

      How don’t you need him? He’s the best midfielder in the world without a doubt. Most creative at least. Also, you haven’t specified what team you support.

    In Spain it is a rule to have a buy out clause on a players contract and Aguero’s is 45m euros which works out at about 39 million pounds. Though if Cesc had to go id tell Barca that Man City and Real want him to get more money.

    What a load of rubbish? This blog is worse than the bumfs it supposedly despise. Repeating all the tosh you nicked from several papers making them yours while adding nothing new is just pathetic. Stop wasting our time.

    Well, Nasri is off to Man U, it is all but confimred – so losing CESC who doesn;t want to play for Arsenal is a big reality as well. He was awful this season, and no point keeping an unhappy player. Gradually over the coming weeks we’ll see a large exodus of our best players as let’s face it – the club is going downhill rapid. With UTD, CHELSEA, CITY all guranteed top 4 next sean and POOL buying big in the summer, be hard to see Arsenal get a top 4 with so many players leaving.

      Your plain stupid. Do you honestly think Wenger would sell Nasri to united????????
      You would do well to go back to school and get your self some class.

      I agree…..with the truegooner …hahah how silly are you nasri to united oooowwwkkkkayyy!did u hear about messi going to real??…nooo?.Coz it ain’t true. 4 players are desperately needed at arsenal. Cahill, samba,Parker and benzema.
      Rvp and benzema will have the whole league cummin in thier pants! In Wenger we trust!! Peace out x

    im not surprised our captain wants to leave, we’ve not given him much support, we’ve driven our beautiful captain into barcas arms. maybe if we didn’t leave all the work to arsene to try and keep our football genius, we should show him how much we need him and how much we depent on his footballing brain, cause believe me we lose this talent, we will fall. so instead of acting like we dont care if he goes, lets all ask him to stay.

    If fabregas is out of emirate let him go and Benzema and aguaro in and will look for good defender it what we need nw. Plz arsene wenger buy quality expensive player. GUNNERS FOR LIFE.
