Barca 'will not pay' €50m for Fabregas

Barcelona will not pay the €50 million that Arsenal are demanding for Cesc Fabregas, according to the club's president Sandro Rosell.

The 23-year-old has been touted with a move to the Catalan giants and despite pledging his future to the North Londoners last summer, rumours are rife about Barca again going in for the midfielder.

However, according to the La Liga leaders, Arsenal's asking price is too high.

“Barca is not disposed to pay €50 million for Cesc Fabregas next summer,” said Sandro Rosell, the Barcelona president.

“That is decided and, although [Pep] Guardiola demands this player, we will not pay this amount.


“It is impossible due to a simple reason. In football, prices are reduced each year and, if we offered Arsenal €40 million for Cesc last summer, €50 million is now impossible.

"If the coach demands Cesc we will negotiate with the Gunners but at a correct limit and without madness and, if the operation is not possible, we will wait for other opportunities.”

This latest twist in one of the longest running transfer sagas in the modern era is a further boost to Arsenal fans hoping to see Fabregas stay at The Emirates Stadium.

The Spanish international has been long tipped to re-join the club he played for as a boy before moving to Arsenal where he has become one of a long list of excellent young talents to be nurtured by manager Arsene Wenger.
