Cesc Fabregas will be allowed to leave Arsenal this summer but only if Arsene Wenger convinces Samir Nasri to stay at the club according to the Guardian. Wenger may finally give up on keeping Cesc at Arsenal if he is able to get Nasri to stay.
Whether he is able to keep Nasri remains to be seen as Nasri is refusing to sign a new contract. With Arsenal having rejected a £27million bid from Barcelona for Fabregas, it is expected that Barcelona are going to come back with a new bid for our captain.
Now if Wenger is hoping to sell Fabregas and keep Nasri, it will be a tall order as Nasri has stated that he will only stay if Arsenal buy new star players and keep Fabregas. Selling Fabregas may not go down well with Nasri as he wants world class players around him. But then on the other hand, Nasri should look at Fabregas’ departure as an opportunity for him to now be the star man at Arsenal.
The way I see it, one of these two is still going to be an Arsenal player next season. I would love it if both of them were to stay but I can not see that happening.
