Here we go again, here’s another ‘rumour’ within the Cesc Fabregas transfer saga, well, now it comes from Barcelona’s part, claiming that Barcelona aren’t (again) willing to break the bank to fund the transfer
Being only of a tender age of 23 and with a contract until 2015, Arsenal believe that Fabregas belongs among the elite group of players (Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo and Fernando Torres) who have commanded transfer fees of at least €50 million, and absolutely rightly so in my opinion.
Barca is not disposed to pay €50 million for Cesc Fabregas next summer.
It is impossible due to a simple reason. In football, prices are reduced each year and, if we offered Arsenal €40 million for Cesc last summer, 50 million is now impossible. If the coach demands Cesc we will negotiate with the Gunners but at a correct limit and without madness and, if the operation is not possible, we will wait for other opportunities
Sandro Rosell, the Barcelona president
So, in other words, the deal could still happen, just as long as Arsenal drop their asking price…
