£30m?! Arsenal Need To Make Barca Pay


By Fab4.

Well it looks increasingly likely that our captain Cesc Fabregas has had enough of life without trophies at Arsenal and has finally decided to return to Barcelona and further his career. Although i will majorly disappointed if/when he leaves but i have been prepared for this day for over 2 years. It was only a matter of time before Fabregas returned home, but I’m just a little gutted he hasn’t given us one more year.

Just as Arsene Wenger seems to have finally realised he needs to buy in order to bring back the glory days, Cesc goes and ruins it all by pi**ing off to Barca. Of course at the time of writing, all the speculation is still to be officially confirmed, but the story seems to have a lot of substance so it seems 99% certain that Cesc has in fact told Arsene he wants to go. So with that in mind, my message to Arsenal is LETS MAKE BARCA WORK FOR HIM!

In my opinion Arsenal are easy pickings when it comes to selling players. Arsene has a theory that it’s wrong to keep a player against his will. I have my issues with this, but i can understand the thinking behind it. But that doesn’t mean we just have to bend over and give our star players away. The reported figure of £30-£35m for Fabregas is ludicrous. Apparently Arsenal will want at least £40m, but if United can get £80m cash for Ronaldo, if Barca are willing to pay £60m PLUS Samuel Eto’o for that twat Ibrahimovic and if Kaka is worth £55m, then Fabregas has got to be worth £50m. Simple.

I have read that Fabregas wants the deal done quickly so he can concentrate on the World Cup. That’s all well and good Cesc, but if your leaving Arsenal it should be on our terms, not yours. If Barca aren’t willing to pay your market value, then they cant want you that much. We should not be held ransom just because a player says he wants to leave. It’s not like he will go on strike and refuse to play, he’s not the sort and respects Arsene, Arsenal and the fans too much. So we have got to hold out for the best deal possible. If that means the deal doesn’t happen and Fabregas remains an Arsenal player then so be it. I hope Wenger let Cesc know this in their ‘meeting’ yesterday.

If we sell Fabregas, our most prized asset, for £30m i will be a seriously pi**ed off Gooner and left questioning the club management. Another question will be, how should Wenger spend the cash? But best to leave that for another day!

How do Arsenal fans feel about the impending departure of Fabregas? Please leave your comments below..

    A feeling of disappointment and certainty. Disappointed that yet again we seem to be a selling club. Certain that he was always going to go home. It is sad that Arsenal seem to put more stock in making money rather than winning trophies. Even more galling when you consider that in the last 5 seasons, with a bit of investment we would have won the league – maybe twice!

    I hear all of the vultures circling the wagon now. Arsenal are finished! But we’ve heard that before and we always survive, like now if Cesc goes – we will carry on. But this time we must spend serious cash. We HAVE to get a decent keeper, a centre back, an enforcer and presumably Chamakh.

    There is a 4 year contract in place. Even Fab not signing, the 30 Million we can get in 2 years as well with 2 years left.
    So what’s the fuss about ?
    Tell Barco off and ask them to ki** their a**.

    arsenal needs not less than 55million pounds from barca if they insist afterall arsenal has won matches in recent times without fabregas. eg arsenal vs fc porto. afterll fabegras could not hold babel one on one when arsenal lost to liverpool 2008/2009. every player is important in different ways. all arsenal needs in the coming season is not sweet football but liltle physical on the ball and shoot from all angles outside 18yrd box. therefore if cesc goes AW should look for a more physcial middlefieder ike viera. we look forward for a better days ahead.

    30m? thats pathetic. barca can’t expect arsenal to accept that offer. even if they start with 50m, we should still demand toure + the cash.

    I think people are jumping to conclusions here. Fabregas has said many times that he plans on honoring his contract. He told Sky News that he is happy at Arsenal and plans to be there for quiet some time. He did say that Barca is in his future but the future is not right now.
