Plenty of rumours circling Barcelona have said that Cesc Fabregas may be returning to the Premier League.
A host of English clubs have been alerted to the potential availability of the Spain international, mainly Manchester United, Manchester City, and former club Arsenal.
A player as technically talented as Fabregas would greatly suit any English team in this day and age, given that no English team has reached a convincing stage in last season’s Champions League.
It appears that Fabregas’ main reason for apparently wanting to leave Barca, is due to his lack of matches and increasing amount of time spent on the bench.
Anybody can guess from this that he would much prefer to actually play for his boyhood club, not have a front row seat on the substitutes bench. So it can be assumed that a situation like this would potentially sway Fabregas’ mind towards a possible return to England. But the question remains as to whether he will choose the Emirates Stadium, or wish for a fresh start.
What if he were to return to Arsenal? Well, for a start it would attract many more top class players who have and do play on the same European level as Fabregas currently does, making Arsenal strong contenders for silverware in the coming season.
Along with the impending change of powers on the Arsenal board, with the soon to be announced, departure of chairman Peter Hill-Wood, this could massively overhaul Arsenal into the financial superpower they need to be.
However, if he were to go up north to Manchester, he could either be adding much needed youth and skill to the David Moyes’ midfield at Old Trafford, or he could massively boost the already world class midfield of Man City.
Either way, people will realise that whoever manages to acquire the signature of the 26-year-old, the quality of the club he may join will definitely see the effects of his arrival.
In the meantime, Barcelona have reported – specifically to Sky Sports, and their Spanish football expert Guillem Balague – who stated that “The club has definitely told me this evening that they have got no intention whatsoever of selling him. His buyout clause, in case anybody is interested, is €200million (£171m), which is a little bit expensive. In any case it is a deterrent for people to come and try to poach him away.”
So in the reality of the situation, it looks as if Fabregas can strike out on his chances of leaving Barcelona any time soon, as even Manchester City could find themselves in a bit of financial trouble if they try to round up enough pennies and credit scores to get that insane buyout clause activated.
