Fabregas prefers Chelsea, despite emotional ties with Arsenal

Share

Cesc, Cesc, Cesc everywhere – not a concrete report to believe!

But what is clear is that, almost all publications – be it in Spain or in England are now reporting that Chelsea could be the likely destination for Cesc Fabregas.

Yesterday, The Times reporter Matt Hughes claimed that Chelsea would only sign Fabregas, “if they exhaust other options”, and now they’re looking to find a deal for Atletico midfielder Koke. 

Last night Italian journalist, beIN Sports correspondent, and Gazzetta dello Sport contributor Tancredi Palmeri dropped a bombshell on Twitter claiming, Chelsea have officially reached an agreement to sign former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona. 

We had earlier reported that Catalan based newspaper Mundo Deportivo revealed that Barcelona have set a €36m price tag on Fabregas as they want to get back the price they offered for the player to arsenal in 2011. 

Fabregas’ first preference would ideally have been his dormer club Arsenal but with manager Arsene Wenger not considering the 27 year old as one of his options in the summer, the Spaniard might move to Stamford Bridge in the summer with the Blues more than willing to pay Barcelona’s asking price for the player.

The midfielder has scored 9 goals and grabbed 14 assists in 45 appearances for the Catalan giants, who have prepared wholesale changes at the Camp Nou after new manager Luis Enrique has taken over from Tata Martino, who had a trophy less season in charge.

The Times today again covered a story on Fabregas. They say, Fabregas is “open to the idea” joining Chelsea, despite his strong emotional connection with Arsenal. The Spaniard will assess all possible options, but would be willing to move to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Arsenal Wenger is understood to have Fabregas that he would have loved to bring him back, but following the signature of Mesut Ozil, there is no room for another attacking midfielder in the team.

  1. Cesc is the direct replacement for Lampard, He can play as a deep lying playmaker, he can score goals but im just not sure where will he fit when we have Matic,Oscar,Ramires,Wiliam and Hazard

    • Dream on, dream on Chelski! Cesc was raise with Arsenal DNA in his blood. He rather play somewhere else than comeback to prem with others jersey. I don’t think Arsene will throw his opportunity to bring him back. For us, his price will half of yours. He will cost us 15-20M pounds. Thanks to our French oldman, it’s in his buy back clause. Further more, big lesson from last season,we need the mid sector as deep as possible. So, Mr. Special(in failure)One, you should start counting your career days before someone named Simeone sit on your chair!

  2. Is fair to say Koke is unreachable after COSTA,FELIPE buys and Pogba really? £65m???…so fabri is serious contender.Mourinho will use Fabregas to partner Matic in holding midfield.He’l be a huge boost.Trust me

  3. No one has mentioned that Cesc doesn’t necessarily want to work under Mourinho. He has Barcelona ties and Arsenal ties and Mourinho has terrible relations with both clubs (not to mention Cesc’s idol, Guardiola and Cesc’s “second father”, Wenger). It isn’t hard to see that this doesn’t exactly equal much enthusiasm for joining Chelsea. I’m going to call this story and saga media mischief until I see more concrete evidence of it.

  4. If morinho could let mata go then I can’t see this deal happening, how on early will fabregas fit into his defence approach…. And moreover Cesc still have arsenal dNA cos he still follow arsenal on twitter

  5. Fabregas come back home to arsenal fc. you will automaticary fit in the system because u’re one of us.

  6. fabrigase is not good for chelsea ;chelsea must take pogba or koke
