Good morning Gooners. For those of you who read TheGooner.com every day, you will know how frustrated I have been waking up every morning this summer and hearing nothing but negative news about Arsenal in the morning backpages and websites. Today (Thursday) is no different as The Sun is running a story that Fabregas is almost set to sign for Barcelona now after the Spanish club increased their bid to £32million and it will rise to £37million with add-ons.
Cesc Fabregas has also been speaking and was interviewed on Spanish radio last night. He said, “There is nothing to talk about. I’m calm. If something has to happen it will. I am always optimistic.
“If a player is on the market it’s because a club doesn’t want him. I have no problem.”
Now that last statement has got me thinking. Is Fabregas saying that Arsenal do not want him? If that is the case then he is lying! We want him to stay but is he now trying to switch the attention of this so that when he does sign for Barcelona he can say he left Arsenal because the club did not want him?
I say Arsenal should now take the money from Barcelona and go and buy new players whilst there is still time in the transfer window. As much as I would like Fabregas to stay, his commitment to the club is now in doubt and if he stays we are continually going to have this distraction of him joining Barcelona every transfer window.
