FABREGAS: “I never said i will definitely leave Arsenal”

Cesc Fabregas has given Arsenal fans hope that he will still remain at the club after claiming he has never said that he ‘will definitely leave Arsenal’. Fabregas has been at the centre of a transfer battle this summer as Barcelona have aggressively tried to lure the Spaniard back to Catalunia. Arsenal rejected their opening bid of £29m two weeks ago and it seemed certain that new Barca president Sandro Rosell would return with an improved offer.

Many thought it was simply a matter of time before the two clubs agreed a fee and Cesc would be heading ‘home’ to Barca. Fabregas has remained tight-lipped on his future until now, but his comments must surely cast doubt on any move this summer. According to the Mirror, Fabregas says anything is possible and is proud to be Arsenal captain.

“I haven’t said that I will definitely leave Arsenal. Everything is possible. Now I have my head and my focus on the World Cup.”I am very pride to be captain of Arsenal and I love the club and have respect for them. It gave me such pride to be made captain.”

Some cynics will say that Cesc has been put off a move after being given a taste of what life could be like warming the Barca bench, as he has not started a game for Spain yet at the World Cup and is being kept out the team by Xavi, Iniesta and Busquets, and all play for Barcelona. The fact that Cesc goes on to talk about his passion for playing and not sitting on the bench may suggest he has had a change of heart, for the time being at least.

“I always want to play. I’m not used to sitting on the bench and I want to be playing at this World Cup.

“I’m always competitive at everything – even on the PlayStation. But that’s my desire to win and I have that even in training.

“I’ve never been a player happy to settle for what I have, I always want more. I respect the coach’s decision.

“I know to be in midfield is going to be difficult because we have a lot of good players but I will never give up.

“I’ve won a lot of caps but if I’ve not played three quarters of the game then it’s not so valuable to me.

“I still don’t think my best time for Spain has arrived and I still must carry on working to improve.”

If I’m honest i had already come to terms with Cesc leaving this summer but now i honestly think his time sitting on the Spanish bench may have given him a reality check. Barcelona’s side will be just as difficult to get into as the national team, if not harder, and Fabregas enjoys being the main-man for Arsenal. He certainly won’t be the main-man for Barca.

    We need to thank the spanish team and their manager. They just showed him a glimpse of what his future could be. Sit there or lead a top quality team. Decisions decisions. Or he just realizes how poorly barcascum value him while he walks around the emirates like hes a god

    Dirty little slop is just trying to get Arsenal fans back on his side now the move to Barcelona is faltering!!! I hope he gets the abuse he deserves for trying to manufacture a move to the SCUM. Make your feeling known Arsenal fans!!!
    I guess warming the Spanish bench has finally made him aware of his role if he went to Barcelona!!! Take the £40 million Arsene and lets get some true Gunners in who want to play for the club and appreciate the chance they get!!

      why do some ‘arsenal fans’ turn on the players!!! – this is unaccpetable!!

      it makes me sick to see ‘fans’ turning on top players that need support – Cesc has a winning mentality – that’s purely the reason he want’s to join Barca – if Arsenal win the league & retain it – Cesc will be around for a long time then move to Barce to end his ‘illustriuos’ career.

      we should support our team – Fabregas will walk into any team in the world – maybe the spanish coach has seen the other teams and is also playing 2 DM – like BRA & NED to avoid being punished by avoidable errors.

    Or they could just play Fabregas in the Alonso role for Spain??? ha ha. Why hadnt this been considered? Same way as Chelski play. Busquets in holding role. Xavi, Iniesta and Fabregas in midfield diamond. Messi just behind Villa up front. Ibrahimovich, Henry et al surplus to requirements. Pedro and Bojan on bench. “Simples”.

      GOOD FOOTBALL BRAIN JGA
      – NEVERTHELESS – IF BARCA WANT CESC – THEY WILL GET HIM. CESC WILL ALSO BE TAUGHT THE BARCA WAY {ROTATION/DEPTH BRINGS IN TROPHIES}. AT ARSENAL THE PLAYERS RUN ON EMPTY AS WE DON’T HAVE ANY DEPTH.

      IF CESC LEAVES – JAVIER PASTORE WILL DEFINETLY BE ABLE TO REPLACE HIM {SIMILAR PLAYER TO KAKA}

    good point JGA, they could change their system to fit him in….

    but they wont!
    they wont have any pace at all apart from messi in mf.. and pep likes to play 2 speedy wingers in messi and pedro/bojan

    maybe we will see villa on left of 3 pronged attack with Ibra still in team…. doubt it tho…

    Barca have won so much in last couple of years and would be stupid to change a system that works…

    and as far as i can see the only positions poss up for grabs would be left side of attack or DM in for busquets….
    and cesc wont want to play either…..

    whenever he gets on for spain it tends to be when xavi or iniesta come off or occasionally on wing where he offers little….
