Like Liverpool, Arsenal Will Be Better Off Selling Spanish Star

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.
