Cesc wants to leave Arsenal soon, says his old man

Could Cesc Fabregas be leaving the Arsenal sooner than we think? The club has made unofficial noises through their favoured hacks about a tug-of-war to keep our talismanic skipper with the latest tabloid price tag topping £80m. But according to Cesc’s old man his son wants to leave us ‘as soon as possible’ so he can conecntrate on Spain’s Wolrd Cup bid.
These are teh quotes running on French paper L’equipe’s website now: ‘Asked at the show “El Primer Toque” de Onda Cero, the father of Francesc Fabregas has discussed the situation in which his son is. “The negotiations between Barca and Arsenal will be long and hard.
‘But Francesc wants a transfer to take place as soon as possible to be quiet during the World Cup, “he said. We’ll see how it ends but Arsenal must respect the will of the player even if he is still under contract. Cesc has always been very pro. Thank Arsenal have been the player he is today, but we want a speedy resolution of negotiations. I think the Gunners will eventually let him go. ”
The website goes on to say: ‘The Spanish international midfielder is currently training with Roja. Recovered from his calf injury, he trains normally last. Then it quotes Joan Oliver, CEO of Barcelona: “A player has expressed his desire to come. Was contacted to say that Arsenal wanted to discuss. It is there. It has not yet made an offer. We do not want to rush. This can take time. ”
How much credence we can give to these remarks remains to be seen. Surely the move can’t take place before the World Cup. We don’t want to sell and want more wonga than the Catalans are going to offer initially.
It seems increasingly unlikely that a deal will be brokered before the World Cup, especially as Cesc and Spain are gearing up for the tournament in South Africa. Some reports today suggest Cesc has told friends that he is ‘500 per cent’ sure of re-joining the club where he came through the youth ranks.
This one will run and run…
