Barcelona will up their offer for Cesc Fabregas to £45m as Pep Guardiola places the Arsenal skipper at the very top of his summer wish-list. The Nou Camp boss has told president Sandro Rosell that he wants the Catalan club to do all it can to bring the 23 year old midfielder back to the club he began his career.
Arsene Wenger is likely to turn down any advances for his club captain and a lot will depend on the player himself and whether the midfielder is ready to push his club to let him return to Spain. Fabregas has previously talked of his desire to one day return to Barcelona and this has led to much speculation that such a move will happen sooner rather than later.
A £45m offer is quite an increase on last summer’s bid which was believed to be in the region of £29m and that increase is very much down to Guardiola’s insistence that the club’s board pull out all the stops to bring the Gunners man to the club.
Fabregas has been an integral part of Arsenal’s first team plans seven seasons now but only has an FA Cup Winners medal to show for his efforts. The youngster has stated that he would not want to leave the club until he has won major honours with them and that dream may well be realised given that the North London club is still very much in the hunt for the Premier League and the Champions League where they will of course come up against Barcelona.
