£50m Fabregas Deal In Jeopardy

By on June 8, 2011

The 50 million offer including a make weight in Alcantara looks set to come to a halt after it has been revealed that Alcantara’s dad doesn’t have any plans for his son to move away from Barcelona.

Football website Goal.com exclusively reveals that Mazinho, Alcantara’s dad, simply doesn’t want his son to move anywhere for the time being, as he is convinced that Barcelona is still the perfect place for his development despite the lack of playing time and him being unwanted at the Camp Nou.


He is very happy here and he wants to stay. He is showing he has the ability to be able to play and compete for a place in this team.

Mazinho told Goal.com

It was just revealed yesterday that Barcelona were apparently tabling an offer of 43 million pounds along with Alcantara as a 7 million pound make-weight in a 50 million pound deal for the Arsenal skipper. Alcantara has only made a mere 17 appearances over the past 3 years with Barcelona.

According to reports, Arsenal will be happy to take in  the (yet another) youngster. On the other hand, Arsenal are trying desperately to keep a hold of their best players, with both Fabregas and Nasri apparently having their sights set on a deal away from the Emirates in the summer.
