Barca Don’t Get The Hint As Rosell Flies In With £35m Cesc Offer

Barcelona have taken no notice of Arsene Wengers comments at the weekend and are reported to be flying over to London on Tuesday in a bid to revive their pursuit of Cesc Fabregas. Barcelona-based newspaper El Mundo claims that new president Sandro Rosell and sporting vice-president Josep Maria will meet up with Arsenal officials and present a new and improved £34m bid.

After Arsenal’s 4-0 victory over Barnet on Saturday, Arsene Wenger expressed his desire to keep Fabregas at the club and claimed he was not interested in talking further about the sale of his captain.

It is very important we give the impression that just because somebody wants a player from us, we do not just give in.

‘We have shown our love and care for Cesc since the start. I believe Cesc loves the club, has shown his attachment to the club many times and I am very confident the story will end there.

‘We want Cesc to be part of our club next year, and that is it.’

Many had hoped that would be the end of the matter, but it seems Barca just can’t take no for an answer and somehow feel Arsenal will change their stance with a £34m bid, which is just £5m more than we laughed off back in June. I think we have made it pretty clear that we don’t want to sell, and even if Wenger is just playing a clever ‘poker game’ with Barca and is trying to get as much out of them as possible, £34m is never going to be enough. Come back with £50m and maybe then Arsenal will talk.

As pointed out by some people in the comments section, Arsene Wenger is currently in Austria with the Arsenal squad so Rosell and his buddy wont be meeting up with him if they are flying over tomorrow. My feeling is that El Mundo are trying to get the ‘Cesc to Barca’ bandwagon started again with some fabricated story.

    Well, if he comes over on Tuesday, Wenger is going to be in Austria at the training camp and there is no way that anybody else would even discuss Cesc, without him being present. I am sure this is a load of tosh.

    A nonsense story started by another gutter site. As aj said, Wenger is in Austria.
    Do your research, ah, yeah right, gutter press and all that.

      Excuse me John, It is made very clear that we have not ‘started’ this story so please don’t claim that we have. As listed in the article, the source is El Mundo, a Barcelona based newspaper, so please direct your ‘gutter site’ comments towards them.

      Also, the article says Barcelona will meet with Arsenal officials…not Wenger. I know very well that Wenger is in Austria, so maybe you should read more carefully in future before making such comments.

    Fab4, funny you should say I should read more carefully; I’ll repeat the first sentence of my post: A nonsense story started by another gutter site.

      Well if your saying you are directing the ‘gutter site’ comment towards El Mundo, they are a newspaper so you should have said ‘gutter newspaper’ otherwise it seems like you are pointing your criticism towards Football-talk.co.uk.

      You also say ‘do your research’. Again, if your talking about El Mundo then say ‘El Mundo should do their research’, or it seems like your talking about myself and this website.

    Right, so you got a copy of El Mundo , read it (in Spanish no doubt) and posted your translation on this site. Whow, I’m impressed.

      What’s your issue here John? 99% of football related websites use other sources for their articles. Most don’t even put the original source, they just claim the story for themselves.

      I actually read the story on the Daily Mail Online, but the original source is from El Mundo. Have you been on the Daily Mail site to moan in their comments section?

      If you think you can do a better job of providing news or writing articles, why don’t you contact the admin team at Football-talk and see if you can become a contributor? Oh no, your just one of those ‘fans’ who likes to criticise others aren’t you?!

        John, Fab4 has clearly, just as thousands of other football sites do, passed on information and statements from other news sources and shared their views on the matter on Football-Talk.In this case “El Mundo” is the source of the speculation.We,as writers, pass on the speculation and often give our views on whether we feel the story has meaning or in some scenarios is just fabricated rubbish,such as the case in this article as the author states “My feeling is that El Mundo are trying to get the ‘Cesc to Barca’ bandwagon started again with some fabricated story”.I agree fully with Fab4.I am also a Football-Talk writer, If you think you can do a better job than us be our guest.Contact admin! If not you might want to reconsider your criticism in the future.

          Cheers for the support Ryan, some ‘fans’ just like to have a bitch and a moan. Thankfully there are not many about.

            No Problem. Have to respond to this rubbish from some “fans” who clearly do not understand that the transfer market is all about speculation.

            At the end of the day you can only believe what you want to believe.We as writers simply post regarding this “speculation” and give our views on the matter.
