Cesc Fabregas transfer: Arsenal great Ray Parlour says the Gunners should NOT re-sign the Spanish playmaker
Fabregas is likely to be on his way out of the Nou Camp this summer
Wednesday 28 May 2014
Arsenal agreed a buy-back option on Fabregas when they sold the midfielder to Barca in 2011, and can re-sign him for around £25m. Reports suggest that the Nou Camp side will listen to offers for the 27-year-old this summer, with a return to the Emirates Stadium mooted. Manchester United and Chelsea are also interested.
Parlour, who made 466 appearances for the club between 1992 and 2004, says that the money would be better spent on a striker tor help ease the burden on Olivier Giroud.
"The problem with Fabregas is where do you put him in the team," Parlour told the Daily Mirror.
"They have got very similar players to Fabregas – they have Mesut Ozil, Santi Cazorla, Jack Wilshere – if you bring Fabregas back, where do you fit him in?
"He was great for the club but forwards should be much more of a priority.
"You look at Manchester City and Liverpool and they have much better forwards."
