UK newspaper Daily Mail reports that Cesc Fabregàs’ time at the Camp Nou may be coming to an end and both his ex club Arsenal along with Manchester United could be the outfits to offer the 26 year old Catalan a lifeline.
Fabregàs could be driven out of his boyhood club, who he rejoined again in 2011, by the Barça boo boys who have made the midfielder some sort of scapegoat due to their below average season.
Barça president Josep Bartomeu also added fuel to the fire when he hinted that there would be big changes at the Catalan club. This news is good for Arsenal fans who believe it’s time for their ex captain to come back while Manchester United’s fans, who are also admirers of the Catalan largely due to his fantastic spell at the Gunners, are also hopeful.
Should Cesc be available in the summer, Arsenal hold the trump card as they have first option to sign him back. However, the question on everyone’s lips is; would Cesc want to go back to a club where he won very little?
Another problem is the ban FIFA imposed on the Catalan giants and a transfer deal could prove a sticky wicket as Barça will not be able to sign any new players. If they are reluctant to let Cesc go, then he would have to endure another season of hatred by the Barcelona fans.
