Arsenal Star Drops A Bombshell
Arsenal right back Bacary Sagna has officially declared that captain Cesc Fabregas wants to leave and re-join Barcelona.
The majority of Arsenal fans will have grown tired of the constant speculation regarding their skipper, who has been linked with a return to his boyhood club for several years now. A deal was close last summer but Barca refused to meet Arsenal’s valuation and he remained with the Gunners’s.
Fabregas himself has admitted in the past he would like to play for Barcelona at one point in the future but has always stopped short of putting a timeframe on the move. However, Sagna has now revealed in an interview on French radio that Cesc wants to return to Spain and re-join Barcelona, with the suggestions being it could be this summer:
“I can say it’s true that Cesc wants to go to Barca,” the right-back told former Paris Saint-Germain coach Luis Fernandez on France’s RMC radio station.
“Fabregas wants to return to his country of birth, to his city, where his family are; he wants to play for one of the best teams in the world, Barcelona, and that’s understandable.
“At the moment, however, he is still Arsenal’s captain.”
Despite Fabregas and Barca’s wishes, Arsene Wenger would remind them both that his skipper is under contract and wont be leaving unless the Catalans stump up some serious cash.
