Cesc to Barca part 473...cont'd tomorrow

And it’s all gone quiet over here. While we lick our wounds after THAT defeat the papers at least give us time to recover with minimal coverage of God’s Own this morning.
The Sun bods were obviously up all night trying to establish exactly when Cesc Fabregas was off back to Barcelona and eventually got what they wanted courtesy of Nou Camp vice-president Alfons Godall. Then they threw a figure at a possible transfer to come up with the Catalan club are piling the pressure on as they plan a £40million summer capture of our skipper.
They quote Godall saying: “Sooner or later Cesc will end up coming back. We are a club that can sign players because we are respected and solvent.” And then remind us that the European champions have made no secret of the fact they want to recapture Fabregas, who left the club when he was 16. You don’t say.
The Daily Mail says we appear to have beaten off competition from another north London team to sign Montenegrin defender Stefan Savic, according to the player himself.
The 19-year-old, who is currently contracted to Serbian side BSK Borca, claims a deal is due to be signed in the coming days following a successful trial period at the Gunners’ training ground in leafy Hertfordshire, says the paper. Bless them for describing the natural wonderland that is Hertfordshire.
The Mail adds that AW is still reeling from missing out on Chris Smalling, the defender who moved to United in January. Speaking to homeland publication Blic online, Savic said: ‘There were offers from Tottenham and Birmingham City, but once a call came from Arsenal, I had no more doubts.” Nice of him.
He added in the Mirror: “A pre-contract will be signed on Thursday and then I will return to Belgrade and join BSK for their preparations. I will be staying with BSK until May.”
Savic made his breakthrough into the BSK Borca side last season making three appearances, and this season he has played seven times and scored in his most recent performance in a 2-0 win over OFK Belgrade, adds the paper.
And for those of you who enjoy despising the Haringey ne’redowells, here is a good read from a happy Hammer who hates them as well and explains why in the Times.
So that’s that, folks, only to ask if anyone knows how Celtic got on last night with their new wonder signing and boyhood idol in the side?
