REPORTS: Barca To Sign Fabregas Within 48hrs After Increasing Offer
Barcelona have increased their offer for Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas and are confident of sealing the deal by the end of the week, according to Sky Sports News.
The Spanish giants had their last bid of £30m rejected by the Gunners last week, but are understood to have upped that offer closer to the £40m asking price set by Arsenal. Barca are confident a deal can be reached within the next 48 hours meaning Fabregas would not take part in this Saturday’s game against Newcastle and has therefore played his last game for Arsenal.
Arsene Wenger is believed to be eager for the deal to be pushed through quickly so he can find a suitable replacement with the Premier League season starting this weekend and a vital 2-legged play-off against Udinese also on the horizon.
