Arsenal have unveiled their new away kit for this coming season. At first look, the kit does not look too bad. It is not the first time we have used the colour blue for our away kit. The kit is available for pre-order from Tuesday, June 28 and will be in stores from Thursday, July 28, 2011.
We got to see pictures of the kit launch on the official Arsenal website and a host of our top players were pictured showcasing the new kit. The likes of Vermaelen, Gibbs, Wilshere and Nasri were pictured in the new kit, but one player who was not seen is Cesc Fabregas. Why was the captain not part of the new kit launch? Could this possibly be a clear sign that Fabregas will be leaving Arsenal this summer to go to Barcelona?
It was good to see Nasri being part of the kit launch, that too may be a sign that the Frenchman is staying with Arsenal.
Many reports today are running their own spin on Fabregas’ future today. The Daily Mail is suggesting that Barcelona are going to offer Arsenal £35million plus incentives to Arsenal for Cesc Fabregas in an effort to have the deal concluded by a week on Friday.
Whilst The Sun is stating that Barcelona want Cesc Fabregas to go on strike next week to force a cut-price move from Arsenal.
I seriously doubt that Fabregas would take this extreme route and go on strike. Next week will be interesting as that is when Fabregas has to report back to pre-season training at Arsenal. If no deal is done before then and Fabregas does not report to training, that could be a worrying sign.
