Recent comments from the Gunners idol have worried some, but could this be a case of the media taking things out of context once again?
Cesc Fabregas will review his Arsenal future at the end of the season and could quit for Barcelona if the Gunners again fail to win any trophies.
The midfielder said ‘it would be a dream to return to Barcelona’ and is keen to reignite a partnership with the world’s most in-form player Lionel Messi after they played together in the same Barca youth team.
His comments will be a major concern to Arsene Wenger as the Arsenal manager seeks to end a run of three seasons without silverware.
Fabregas said: ‘Right now I’m fine at Arsenal but I cannot deny that to return and play for Barca would be a dream come true.
‘I chose to stay at the club last summer and right now I’m totally focused on the reason for that decision which was to try and win trophies.’ (Daily Mail)
So do any of these words attributed to Cesc worry the fans? Personally I don’t see him leaving for a long time, he knows he is loved at the club and he is more than aware of the incredible array of talent coming through and that the club will be challenging for major honours soon enough (perhaps even this season). The £50m-rated midfielder is constantly linked with a move back to Spain, so these comments may be a little unwise as they simply put the whole issue back on the table, but Fabregas has shown this season he is willing to fight for the cause, so there is probably no cause for panic.
Do Arsenal fans think there is any chance Cesc would seek to leave the club?
