In the news today:
Widespread reports suggest the Cesc Fabregas saga could be over within the next 48 hours, with only a fee to resolve in the Spaniards departure for Barcelona.
The Arsenal captain has been long since linked with a move back to his former club, and Arsenal have resisted that temptation to sell for the best part of 24 months, however, that resistance appears to be subdued today.
Cesc, who has refused to make any public acknowledgement of his desire either way, has been almost assured newspaper inches and website hits on a daily basis leaving Arsenal fans in the lurch.
Like many protracted ‘high-profile’ transfers, there always seems to be the word ‘saga’ attributed to the process. But, right or wrong, this process will be done and dusted within the near future – thankfully.
Elsewhere in the club, Andrei Arshavin described the potential loss of Fabregas and Nasri as “enormous,” casting further doubts over his own desire to stay should the pair leave.
He told Sport Express: “The policy of our club [next season] is the same, but it is difficult to say anything specific now, not least from the fact that two leading players, Cesc and Samir, have not decided their future.
“The loss of any one of them would be enormous, and we naturally want to see Cesc and Samir play with us in the future – but if the player wants to leave the club….
“It is hard to say [whether they will stay].”
