According to this source, Arsenal’s jewel in the crown is thinking of leaving the Emirates at the end of the season, and has passed up the opportunity to consider a new lucrative contract to make him the highest-paid player at the club. Thankfully for supporters, this particular newspaper has been known to get it wrong before – just on the odd occasion!
The News of the World has done some sterling work in the field of fiction, where the truth is suspended more times than Robbie Savage in his heyday. On this occasion, they have picked an easy target, going for a story about Cesc Fabregas passing up the chance to earn £90,000 a week at Arsenal, instead turning his attention to Real Madrid or Barcelona.
CESC FABREGAS has rejected new £90,000-a-week contract talks at Arsenal — paving the way for him to quit the Emirates at the end of the season.
Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid have been put on alert after Fabregas turned down the chance to renegotiate his existing deal.
While it remains to be seen whether or not the above is true, Arsenal supporters must be getting concerned that their team’s inability to win any silverware this season might see their Spanish midfielder leave the Emirates, especially as he regularly states that they ‘need to win something’ this term. Do Gooners think silverware is imperative if Fabregas is going to stick around?
