Would Man United be doing Arsenal a favour in bidding for Fabregas?

By Stefano on July 15th, 2013

There’s a lot of talk this morning suggesting that David Moyes is mulling over a move for Barcelona’s Cecs Fabregas. So how might this be good news for Arsenal?

Well the theory runs like this. At the moment, in spite of the arrival of Neymar, Fabregas is committed to staying in Barcelona and battling it out for a first team place. However the more interest there is in the player the more likely I guess that he might feel that he would be more valued elsewhere.

And with all due respect to United he is much more likely to end up back at Arsenal. No one knows, but it seems quite likely that Arsenal have a buy back clause and that would mean that they would be able to scoop up the midfielder for much less than United will have to pay for him.

The Indie said this a couple of days ago…

Arsenal sold Fabregas to Barcelona in 2011 after a long-winded pursuit of the Catalan youngster, but it is believed that a £25 million clause in his contract will see Arsene Wenger have first refusal on the midfielder.

And would Fabregas want to come back? Well he is no Van Persie. Fabregas is clearly besotted with the club, is still on very good terms with the management and players and watches as many of the games as he can. Would Wenger want him Back though, after all there is a school of thought that Arsenal have already replaced him with Santi Cazorla? I think the player’s flexibility would mean that Wenger would find a place for him.

The big worry is that with their current squad Arsenal still don’t look like they will rival United for the title this season.  The addition of a couple of hefty big money signings, along with Fabregas could change all that.

Whether those big money signings arrive is another matter. Ultimately I think that in spite of the interest from United Fabregas will try his luck at Barcelona for at least another year. But if he has a change of mind, David Moyes could be doing Arsenal a favour in helping nudge the player closer to the exit door.


Arsenal transfer update – Diego Milito a target? Wenger thinks Fabregas will return and Walcott contract details

By Stefano on January 13th, 2013

Arsenal are in need of striker, Inter Milan need to slice their wage bill and lose a few senior players. Betting company Ladbrokes  have added one and one and made 33 – because that is the age of Arsenal’s alleged new target Diego Milito.

The veteran Argentinian striker hasn’t had much of a look in in Milan recently and could be available in a cheap deal. There’s no denying the player’s quality – he’s bagged almost a goal every two games across his career. But is Wenger really going to sign a 33 year old?

Sounds ludicrous until you think that Arsene considered signing a 35 year old in Thierry Henry and also brought Sol Campbell back to the club aged 35. Milito would bring some serious experience to The Emirates and he is a player who has among other things won the Italian treble – which Inter secured in 2011 and Milito played a major role in.

Milito could in theory be added to the squad without upsetting the current pair of striker Walcott and Giroud.

Meanwhile Wenger has also been talking about how expects Cesc Fabregas to return to Arsenal at some point.

Wenger said

‘I’m not convinced Fabregas won’t come back here one day. He’s an Arsenal man. He loves Arsenal. He watches every Arsenal game. Barcelona was his home town where he grew up and you have to accept this, especially as Barcelona are the best team in the world. He won’t return in the next two or three years but, after that, maybe.’

Finally The Mirror reveals that one of the main problems in finishing the deal with Theo Walcott has been the length of time the player wants to commit to. Apparently the player only wants a three and half year deal which means that in eighteen months they would have to consider starting new contract talks. The club want to tie him down for four and half years.
