Those were the words echoed by Arsene Wenger. Wenger was responding to questions surrounding the future of the Arsenal captain and whether he will be going to Barcelona this summer. According to Wenger, Barcelona have not contacted Arsenal yet with regards to signing Cesc.
Barcelona approached Arsenal last summer with bid that was turned down by Arsenal and they have not come back with a new bid this summer but I am sure they will as they really want Cesc. If Wenger has it his way, he would not want to sell Fabregas as he calls him the best midfielder in the world.
Wenger said, “This year there hasn’t been an interest. My No.1 wish is to keep Fabregas – for me he is the best midfielder in the world and we naturally built the team around him.”
Calling Fabregas the best midfielder in the world is a big statement especially after seeing Xavi and Iniesta destroy Manchester United in the Champions League final. Do you think Fabregas is the best midfielder in the world?
