A lot of rumors have been reported about the future of Barcelona star, Cesc Fabregas. Here is a round-up of all latest developments.
The 27-year-old seems to be forced out of Camp Nou despite Barcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, claiming on Friday that the club doesn’t want to sell him.
There have been all sorts of reports lately, linking Fabregas with the top English clubs after Catalan press claim the player has reached an agreement with a Premier League club.
Whether that's true or not, we cannot confirm, but it seems Fabregas is bound to leave Camp Nou.
“Barcelona have told Cesc (Fabregas) he has to find a team. He is being pushed out by Barcelona but will take his time to find the right club for him,” Spanish football expert, Guillem Balague tweeted on Monday.
Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea all appear interested in the player.
However, Arsenal have reportedly ruled themselves out of re-signing their former star as reported by the reliable Spanish expert.
“Arsenal do not want Cesc (Fabregas) back, he has been told that already by Arsenal,” Balague continued his Tweets.
Some reports claim that Fabregas has been seen in London and others that his agent, Darren Dein, had a meeting with Arsene Wenger, but again Balague clarifies: “His agent did not meet Wenger lately (haven’t spoken for a month).”
Manchester United are keen to sign Fabregas since David Moyes had reportedly two bids rejected last summer. However, Louis van Gaal, is suggested to not want to sign the Spanish international and has set his sights on other players.
Manchester City, meanwhile, are claimed to have joined the race as well. It would appear logically after the recent rumours about Yaya Toure's unhappiness. But again, sources close to club have denied any real interest in the player.
Chelsea, finally, could hijack the deal, with Mourinho reportedly in the market for a strong central midfielder. But the Blues seem not prepared to offer Fabregas such an outrageous salary as United have been linked with.
