With the constant speculation linking Fabregas and Nasri with moves away from Arsenal, it has been suggested, mainly in the case with Nasri, that the players want higher wages in their new contracts. It is a tag many footballers in the game are carrying today that they are more worried about how much they earn than actually going out and playing the game they love.
Arsene Wenger spoke about this during an interview in the Far East when the Gunners went on tour, he said:
“In the case of Fabregas, he is torn between Barcelona, where he grew up, and Arsenal, where he has been educated. It’s not financial. Nasri is the same: they both love the club and are very happy with us. Hopefully we can keep them both happy here.”
