Arsenal Says No to Barcelona for Cesc Fabregas

Arsenal has snubbed Barcelona’s interest for Cesc Fabregas. The Arsenal captain has been the prime target for Barcelona this summer and the player has also recently revealed his interest to move to his boyhood club.

Fabregas recently said that he would only wear Barcelona shirt if he leaves Arsenal. The star midfielder, who joined the North London club from Barcelona in 2003, is the most prized asset at the current Gunners set up.

Barcelona recently officially informed Arsenal of their interest to their captain. However, the North London club has made it clear that their captain is not for sale at any price and they are not even interested to discuss on the matter.

Arsenal’s decision seems to have disappointed Fabregas, but the midfielder has said that his future is currently at the hands of manager Arsene Wenger who would decide whether he stays or leaves the club in the Summer.

Barcelona has been eyeing the player over the last couple of seasons. Ahead of the club’s presidential election coming up next, candidates are using Fabregas deal as a pre-election agenda.

Like the case of Cristiano Ronaldo, who last year joined Real Madrid from Manchester United, there could be an internal understanding between Arsenal and Barcelona over the matter and the player may move to Barcelona next season.
