Barca Chief: No News On Fabregas Transfer

By on July 6, 2011

Andoni Zubizarreta, Barcelona’s sporting director today claimed that no developments have been made in Cesc Fabregas’ move to the club.

“Things have not changed,” he told Spanish press on Wednesday. “Much calm is needed in this operation in order to attend to events.”

The Arsenal captain has been linked with a move to his boyhood side Barcelona for last three summers but as yet nothing has come of the constant speculation.

Last summer the Gunners rejected two bids made by Barcelona for the 24 year old midfielder, so far this summer it is not clear whether or not any bids have been put forward. Barcelona’s president Sandro Rosell suggested that Cesc’s value has fallen over the past 12 months and the Catalan team would not pay more than his current price.

It has also been reported that Barca’s La Liga rivals Real Madrid are also targeting Fabregas this summer causing further uncertainty in the whole saga.

Is it not time for the whole Cesc Fabregas ordeal to be over? It has been obvious for a while now that Cesc would like to make the move, if he did not he would have stopped the rumours for once and all. Arsenal should work with Barca or Real (if there is any credibility in the reports that they are also interested) and come to an agreement and make the sale. The Gunners should ensure they get the best price possible but they certainly should not drag this process out any longer because it is true with each passing season Cesc’s value is likely to decrease.

Arsenal should get as much as they can from the sale of Cesc and reinvest it by buying good quality players to strengthen the squad.

    “they certainly should not drag this process out any longer because it is true with each passing season Cesc’s value is likely to decrease.”

    Sorry but i don’t agree with that.

    A player reaches their peak at around 26/27 sometimes even later.

    If Barca so desperatly want Cesc back home they can offer the money we are selling him at.

    He has several years left on his contract and should be sold to the highest bidder, especially after the way Barca have gone about thier business.

    I for one would love to see him sold to Madrid for £50m as rumours reported.
