Nou Camp tactics becoming more and more flagrant as race for Emirates captain heats up.
Xavi is confident his Spanish compatriot will be joining him in Pep Guardiola’s side.
“Yes, certainly,” said Xavi in Sport when asked if he expected to play alongside Fabregas next season. “And it also had to be like this.
“Two years I said Cesc would end up playing for Barcelona and now I have it more clear than ever.
“He has also expressed publicly that he wants to come to Barcelona and when a player wants to move to some place he ends up going.
“It is clear that Cesc will come to Barcelona.” (Sky Sports)
I have an idea. Why don’t all the Arsenal players arrange press conferences during which they repeatedly state that Leo Messi “Will definitely be at the Emirates next season” or a variation on the theme such as “Messi is an Arsenal player, it’s only a matter of time” or how about “I have spoken to Leo and his dream is to live across the road from Ashburton Grove, just near the Holloway Road Tube”.
Seriously I am getting fed up with the manner in which the Nou Camp stars have behaved over this matter. You kind of expect this kind of treatment from the media but when it comes from players and club officials surely it’s time for UEFA to get involved. Obviously as we are talking about Barcelona and not an English club, a blind eye will be turned.
