“Just make them go away!”
It’s all here in black and white. Arsenal skipper ‘Cesc Fabregas is almost 100% definitely going to be a Barcelona player next season.
According to that last bastion of truth in a world split asunder by lies, El Mundo Deportivo (which is, by complete coincidence, published in Barcelona), the Gunner’s midfielder has confided in his ‘family and friends’ that he has agreed a four-year deal with Barca, and the only thing standing in the way of his move to the Camp Nou is that both teams cannot agree on a suitable compensation package.
The Spanish rag goes on to speculate that a fee of €40 million has been agreed between the two club’s and, in addition, Arsenal look set to secure Yaya Toure in part-exchange for Fabregas.
However, the Ivorian midfielder’s exorbitant wage demands are the only sticking point that is keeping the deal from going through.
Arsenal fans may as well start saying there goodbyes (again). It seems the inevitable is finally going to happen (again)…
