Surely there is no way in the world that the Emirates captain would do such a thing. Must just be a load of rubbish.
According to Spanish daily ‘Sport’, Barcelona president Joan Laporta has met with Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas in Morocco to negotiate a deal to bring him to the Nou Camp.
There has been constant speculation in the Spanish media over Fabregas’ future and an impending move to home town club Barcelona. Fabregas has publicly stated his intention to stay at Arsenal. However, last week Barcelona’s sporting director Txiki Begiristain denied the claim of Arsenal chief Peter Hill-Wood that the Catalan giants had agreed not to move for Fabregas this summer.
“At no time did we say we would not try to hire Cesc Fabregas “, said Begiristain.
Now, Spanish daily ‘Sport’ claims that Barcelona’s outgoing president Joan Laporta travelled to Morocco last week, officially on business connected to his law firm and to talk about the creation of a soccer school. However, Arsenal captain Fabregas is currently on holiday in Morroco, recovering from a broken leg sustained scoring a penalty for the Gunners against Barcelona in the Champions League.
Moroccan daily ‘El Botolan’ apparently reports that Laporta and Fabregas met in Morocco, with ‘Sport’ claiming that they “leave everything ready for the player to come to Barca this summer.” (IMScouting)
I mean just how likely is it that a clandestine meeting between Joan Laporta and Cesc Fabregas took place? Not bloody likely in my view. In this day and age when any well known celebrity’s every move is being watched by paparazzi hoardes and any Tom, Dick or Harry can snap a photo of such a liaison and have it scrawled across the web in a matter of a nanosecond.
Seriously its time Barcelona were chastised by UEFA for their behaviour in relation to their constant attempts to lure Cesc Fabregas back to the Nou Camp but I am pretty damn sure they wouldn’t be as stupid as to attempt to arrange this.
