There has been no indication from Barcelona that they are prepared to meet Arsenal's £48m valuation of Cesc Fabregas this summer.
The Arsenal captain is coming round to the reality that he will not get his long-anticipated move to his boyhood team, who have told Arsenal they can afford no more than £30m. Fabregas's representatives indicated yesterday that no talks are imminent. He has four years to run on his existing deal, which puts Arsenal in a strong position.
Sources close to the player feel this is the critical summer if he is to get the move.Reuse content
