Barcelona to make cash plus players offer for Fabregas
Monday 16 November 2009
Barcelona will offer Yaya Toure and Bojan Krkic to Arsenal in order to clinch the signing of Cesc Fabregas it was reported today.
The Arsenal captain has long been linked with a return to the club he left as a 16-year-old, and reports in Spain suggest a deal will be completed in the summer.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is determined to hold on to his captain but Barcelona believe that offering the two players, who Wenger is known to admire, plus cash, will be enough to sway the Frenchman.
Both Yaya Toure, the brother of former Gunner Kolo, and Krkic have fallen down the pecking order at Barcelona.
Fabregas has made it clear he has no intentions of leaving Arsenal, but despite this the rumours linking him with the Nou Camp refuse to disappear.
It has also been reported in Spain that Real Madrid could come in for 22-year-old Fabregas with an offer approaching £50m.
