With each passing day, we are not getting any closer to finding out if Barcelona are going to meet Arsenal’s valuation and sign Fabregas. The Daily Star is reporting that Arsenal have now given Barcelona until Monday to decide if they want to sign Fabregas or not.
I think giving the club a deadline is a good idea so we know what we are dealing with. If they want Fabregas then they must pay up and take him and then we can start focusing on the season coming up knowing that we are not going to have Cesc. On the other hand if they do not want him then we must know so Wenger can plan his team and transfers knowing that his captain will remain.
Barcelona have sign Sanchez and that was thought to be their top summer target. “Sanchez was always our No.1 target,” said their negotiator, vice-president Josep Bartomeu. “Fabregas was always No. 2.”
I wonder how that statement makes Cesc feel, knowing that he was always the second option for Barcelona this summer. Surely he should take a hint and know that he will more than likely sit on the bench if he goes to Barcelona.
With Arsenal’s team photo for the coming season being taken tomorrow (Thursday) it is pretty certain that Fabregas is going to be in it and sitting next to Wenger as I can not see a deal being done before then to take Fabregas to Barcelona.
