REPORTS: Barca Chiefs Set To Fly In For Fabregas Talks

arsenal news

Barcelona are attempting to set up a meeting with Arsene Wenger and Ivan Gazidis in London this week to discuss the transfer of Cesc Fabregas, according to the Daily Mail.

The Spaniards will send over directors Josep Bartomeu and Andoni Zubizarreta to negotiate the deal but have been given instructions not to offer more than £35m for Fabregas, who is the Catalans top transfer target this summer.

Arsenal will reject that offer out of hand and insist they wont be held to ransom by Barca and are believed to want at least £45m for their captain, although manager Arsene Wenger maintains he isn’t prepared to sell his play-maker at any price.

It’s difficult to see a resolution to this long-running saga as neither side look like moving on their valuation of the player. Barcelona expected Fabregas to go public with his desire to leave the Gunners, but the midfielder has remained dignified throughout and insists he wont do anything to damage his love affair with Arsenal or the fans.
