Barcelona are preparing a new bid for Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas and the Catalan club are confident they will finally seal the deal to bring their former youth team player back to the Nou Camp next summer. After failing with a £32m bid for the Spanish midfielder in June Pep Guardiola has place the 23 year old at the top of his transfer target wish-list and will sanction a bid of around £45m when the season comes to a close.

There was intense speculation all summer long over a proposed Barcelona move for Fabregas, speculation that was further fuelled by the player’s own inability to make a clear cut statement that his future was at the Emirates however the north London club stuck by its guns and refused to accept any offer for their captain, however Barca President Sandro Rosell is now confident that the club will re-sign the player they lost in 2003.

Arsene Wenger will be hopeful that the Gunners end their five year long silverware drought this term otherwise he may feel it will be harder to persuade his most prized asset to not push for a move back to his homeland but if Arsenal do not win either the Premier League or the Champions League titles then it may prove to be another long and tortuous summer for the club’s supporters.

Spanish sources believe that a deal will be struck next summer and some reports even suggest Arsene Wenger may have accepted defeat on the matter and is already looking for long term replacements for a player who has become integral to the club over the course of the last seven years.
