Fabregas to stay at Arsenal for another year


By Fab4.

News has emerged today that Cesc Fabregas is set to stay at Arsenal for one more season before heading back to Barcelona next summer. According to, the reason for the delay is Arsenal’s refusal to do business with outgoing Barca president Joan Laporta, who has rubbed Arsenal’s hierarchy up the wrong way over the years by publicly unsettling their players. Here is an extract from the report:

Arsenal will refuse to do business with Barcelona over the possible sale of club captain Cesc Fabregas while outgoing president Joan Laporta retains office. However, is aware that the frontrunner in the forthcoming Nou Camp election, Sandro Rosell, has been in regular contact with Gunners’ chief executive Ivan Gazidis about a deal for the Spanish midfielder and has been positively received.  In an attempt to repair relations with the north London club it is understood that Rosell will call an end to the media-led pursuit of Fabregas and instead look to secure a gentleman’s agreement which will see the player move seamlessly to the Nou Camp next summer for a fee more in line with Arsenal’s valuation.

This makes sense to me. If Fabregas is to leave, then i would prefer that letch Laporta doesn’t get the credit for his signature. His public pursuits of Thierry Henry, Alex Hleb and now Cesc Fabregas were and are a disgrace. Someone should have done something about this arrogant t*at a long time ago. If the best we can do is dent his ego then so be it.

This deal would make sense for all parties. Its clear Fabregas wants to go and will make the move sooner or later. This way we would get another year out of him in what will hopefully be a strengthened squad capable of fighting on all fronts next season. Ramsey and Wilshere get another year to learn from him before he leaves and they take over. We all know where we stand and Fabregas gets his move, without complications and we get a huge transfer fee and part company in an amicable way.

Nobody wants a messy transfer saga to be drawn out, Barca trying to force Cesc into handing in a transfer request, talks of buying out his contract and all that rubbish. Lets agree to let this Rosell fella get the glory of ‘bringing Cesc home’, while getting one over on Laporta and Fabregas is an Arsenal player for another year. Then we can say our goodbyes and thank-yous properly at the end of next season.

Of course this report could be a load of crap and completely made up as they have run-out of things to write about! But i hope not, because it’s a deal that would suite all parties.

Would you be happy to see Cesc stay for one more season?

    Could be a fabrication of the vote-for-Rosell camp…

    I would be happy with 1 more year from Fab. I wonder though, if the Gunners DO win some trophies next year (and if possibly, Barca do not) if Fabergas would consider staying?
    Just a thought.

    I think the one year further stay would be ideal for all parties concerned.
    It will give Arsenal some breathing space to see if Aaron Ramsey recovers well enough to advance the wonderful form he was beginning to show and Jack Wilshere will be one year older with perhaps more experience on loan to Bolton.
    With hopefully a world class goalkeeper and centre half signed, we will have an awesome squad capable of giving anyone a run for their money.
    It is easy to forget that Cesc is till only 23 and improving greatly all the time; his 15 goals thsi season is eveidence of this.
    We all know his roots are back in Barcelona, but he should ask himself what is best for him, being the linchpin and captain of a team whose supporters adore him or go back to Barcelona where he is not even guaranteed a starting place in the line up
    Stay one more year Cesc and then make a properly calculated decision

    Fabregas shouldn’t be opened the gates at Emirates to leave for Barcelona. Wenger should take note of this and give Barcelona a decisive ultimatum on the fans’ love for the player.

    I still don’t understand this, why do we love this guy so much when he has stated on so many occasions that he wants to leave ? If a guy wants to go let him go no player is bigger than Arsenal, whats the sense in keeping him for one more year when more than likely he is going to come back from the world cup tired and injured. The only important thing is getting the right price for the guy, we couldn’t win with him so we can’t do any worst without him.

    yeah, i’m not sure its clear he wants to go, i havent seen anyone give proof that he actually wants to leave arsenal for barca…i’m sick and tired of hearing people talk about how bad he wants to go, if people truly want to believe that, then fine, but quit publishing your OPINION without quoting the man.

      Sorry mate, but if you don’t know that Cesc wants to go Barca by now, your kiddin yourself. He’s not coming out with a definitive ‘i want to go’ statement due to the respect he has for Arsenal, Wenger, and Arsenal fans.

      AND, i will continue to publish my opinion, cos im a contributor to this site and that’s what i do! Feel free to contact the admin team and have your opinions published if you feel strongly about something.

    My head is sayin let him go, but my heart is sayin cesc stay.
    Barca kno tht if they leave Arsenal 2 settle n get a gd quality team, Arsenal will be the team which plays the best entertaining football in the world therefore they try by any means to disrupt its progress, time & time again, Season after season. If u look at the players they bought from the gunners, they were’nt much of part of their plans anyway. Van bronchost, sivinho, hleb, Thierry,
    and now Fabregas, for later im hearin Gael Force Clichy.
