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.

    Fabregas can go to hell (Barcelona)

  2. Arsenal4Life says:

    Because Fabregas is heading to Barcelona. Also I think Almunia, Squilachi, Clichy, Denilson, Rosicky and Bendtner will leave.
    To replace them we will buy: Samba, Jagielka/Cahill, Chamberlain, Vidal, Gervinho, Mata/Alvarez!

    We will bring back Vela, Lansburry, Frimpong, Coquelin and Jay-E Thomas.

    Are u serious?!?! I can’t see van Persie as well. Is he also leaving in this summer?! Why should Arsenal “fans” write such articles!? Are really an Arsenal fan? We should support our players and not say they are leaving every time “try to sell their house”, or go on vacation somewhere? Btw where was Arshavin, or Sagna, or Song, or Walcott?!!?

    Let it be over already

  6. Hamad says:

    Because he was and still is on holidays in a different continent. Henry had a promo in Arsenal shirt for Nike and then shown on before he was sold the very next day. This article is just nonsense.

    Pls fabregas don’t go

  8. abdo says:

    Let’s be realistic, Fabregas’s heart not with Arsenal and that was obvious last season, therefore let him go a move on Arsenal bigger than any player.

    ummm i don’t know maybe was on a vacation fabregaS said not to listen anything in the next to 2 weeks so i don’t really belive all the news about him and a another fan did an article on nasri been gloomy in the photo shot everyone wasen’t smileing but i saw the video on and he was laughing and having a good time if that was what he mean’t buy posting that article

  10. mcgooner says:

    let him go at least at barca he will win something

  11. Olatunji says:

    Every arsenal fan knows it’s only a matter of time before cesc leaves, but it’ll be painful for him to leave without winning a trophy as the club’s captain.

  12. jeremy says:

    really??? well i cannot see van persie, nor song nor Sagna nor walcott nor Ashavin nor Diaby and a host of other players, so we are selling them all based on your judgement????

  13. Leo Charey says:

    Fabregas is the main part of current Arsenal.

    This is realy stupid comments about “Hell”.

    Of course, Fabba have a passion to Barca, but he also have respect to the Arsenal.

    I can’t understand Gooners, who said about Fabba in negative form. The greatest players like Viera, Henry, Bergkamp made history and the glory of club. But it was a strong team, it wasn’t only one player.

    Fabba it’s the one hero of current team, there are nobody to help him last 4 years in this battle against united, scousers and blues.

    It will be a grate disaster if Fabba go from Club.

    Oh my God!!! We’re only going to have 6 players next season!!! How are we supposed to win any titles with only 6 players? A keeper, 2 defenders, 2 midfielders and Chamakh?! That’s not enough, I mean FIFA regulations state we have to be able to field 11 players. If Chamakh gets injured we’ll only have 5, I’m switching my support to Tottenham, at least they have more than 6 players in their team, this is a disaster!!!

    Yes Cesc would luv Barca but he has a long term contract with Arsenal, so If Barca really want Cesc they can either pay our valuation of the player or shovel their cash up their a**.
    When madrid wanted cr7 they paid wat manu asked for. Or r they telling the cesc that £30m +Eto’o= Ibra, was a fair value 4 Ibra.
    If they can’t afford him ley them find cheaper options eg Denilson. Up Gunners.

    plz cesc stay

    this means nothing, I remember the arsenal sight featured adebayor in a kit release photos before they sold him to man city, and even throughout the season while he was at man city they still had the odd picture of him in an arsenal kit on the site

  18. I’m a United fan and i come in peace. Not taking the author’s side but it really is strange when your biggest player whose shirts sell more than anyone is missing from the campaign. Something is really fishy i tell you.
