Everybody is talking about it, even the Prime Minister. Cesc Fabregas’ on/off move to Barcelona has done more rounds than Evander Holyfield, but the saga still doesn’t look like coming to an end anytime soon.
Speaking at a 10 Downing Street charity event, that was attended by Fabregas himself, David Cameron said following a speech about tourism: “We’re now going to see Cesc Fabregas – one Spanish tourist who I hope isn’t returning to Spain.”
Cesc himself weighed in with: “I am delighted that the FA and staff at Downing Street have chosen Street League as one of their partner charities this year,” avoiding any controversial statement.
Arsenal have so far turned down two bids from Catalunya, but the Spanish giants are adament that they will ‘do their best’ to bring Fabregas to the Camp Nou this summer.
Following the arrival of Alexis Sanchez this week (in Barcelona), it’s now thought they need to see one or two others to raise the Arsenal asking price.
ESPN Soccernet sources claim: “”It is very complicated, and as yet no deal has been finalised. The player wants to go and hopefully there will be a resolution. There isn’t one as yet.”
