The situation Cesc Fabregas finds himself in at Arsenal is akin to a "kidnapping" and the English club should allow him to return to Barcelona, the mayor of his home town has said.

Fabregas, 24, is known to want a transfer back to the club he left as a 16-year-old in 2003 and Estanislau Fors i Garcia, the mayor of Arenys de Mar, said: "We want him right away, he is experiencing a kidnapping. If the English are so honourable, they should behave properly."
