Italian side seek to unsettle Emirates captain, Barca style!
Inter are so certain of landing Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas at the end of the season, they have taken out an insurance policy against him becoming injured in future, according to Sky Sport Italia.
Despite Fabregas being under contract with Arsenal, Inter have reportedly added his name to their insurance policy which applies to every player under contract with them, such is the guarantee that the Spanish international will join Jose Mourinho’s side.
Fabregas could form a formidable partnership with Esteban Cambiasso in central midfield should the audacious move come to fruition, and Mourinho will adapt his formation to play with the Gunner in mind.
It’s no secret the ‘Special One’ is a keen admirer of the former Barcelona player and part of the deal will see troubled striker Mario Balotelli join Arsenal. The Italian under-21 striker has often been linked with a move to north London?.
Such a move is rare in football in terms of clubs taking out insurance policies to protect players before their arrival, but reports in Italy are certain this has happened, fuelling speculation that Fabregas has already decided to join Inter at the end of the season.
“Fabregas is not yet under contract at Inter, but he will be. Fabregas to Inter. You have understood well,” is what the reporter from Sky Sport Italia said when their news bulletin was aired on Tuesday afternoon. (Goal.com)
One can only imagine that Inter Milan have tipped off Sky Sports Italia in a manner that is somewhat typical of Barcelona style behaviour. The Emirates skipper has been constantly linked with a move back to the Nou Camp and as such has been the focus of a lot of underhand actions from the Catalan giants. Now it seems Jose Mourinho is planning a similar style of offensive.
Quite why anyone would think that the Arsenal skipper would make a move to Serie A is beyond me. I think a move to Barcelona could be a distinct possibility some time in the future as Cesc clearly has a link to his former club, but a move to Inter Milan seems far fetched to say the least.
This could well be the first of many attempts by the Italian side to attempt to unsettle Fabregas, after all this is how the whole mess with Barcelona started. Expect the next move to be a Inter Milan player stating that he would love to see the Spaniard at the San Siro.
I think that Gunners fans can relax on this one, especially as the north London side have displayed their abilities to challenge for big silverware this term.
