Nou Camp star set for Emirates Stadium return?
Reports from Spanish source Marca and Inside Spanish Football link Cesc Fabregas with a return to Arsenal, claiming the 25 year old has failed to force his way into new Barcelona boss Tito Vilanova’s first team plans.
This would be something of a surprise and could well be a piece of fiction thought up by Marca, a publication that is famous for attacking Barcelona or producing hard to believe reports related to the Catalan giants.
Fabregas was overlooked by Vilanova for both legs of the Spanish Super Cup Final against Real Madrid but the former Gunners skipper has started both Barcelona’s La Liga fixtures this term so speculation about the Spanish international not being a player Vilanova has faith in appear to hold very little water.
A move away from Barcelona, and indeed a return to the Emirates Stadium, seem impossible to believe though clearly Fabregas is a player who made a real impact at Arsenal during seven seasons as a first team regular.
Cesc Fabregas pushed for a return to Barcelona, having left the La Liga side at the age of 16, having failed to achieve much in the way of tangible success. The midfielder secured just an FA Cup success during his time at the North London club.
