Barcelona – Cesc Fabregas

Neymar’s £50million arrival at Camp Nou received some unbelievable fanfare but his presence could spell the end for the former Arsenal captain.

Despite insisting he was desperate to stay at Barcelona amidst speculation over possible bids from Manchester United and Arsenal, Fabregas will know that Neymar’s presence will mean opportunities in the starting XI will lessen.
