Cesc Fabregas is a world class midfielder.
Possessing supreme intelligence on the pitch, the ability to pass to perfection and holding the power to change the tempo of a match, there are so many great qualities that Fabregas holds.
At the age of 16, he left his home of Barcelona to join Arsenal. Little time was needed for Fabregas to showcase his outstanding talent and show the huge potential he held at such a young age.
Fabregas eventually broke into the Arsenal first team and fought very hard to earn himself a starting positon. Following this, he adapted well to the Premier League and often praised the work of manager, Arsene Wenger, who's footballing vision suited Fabregas's style of play perfectly. Fabregas made himself a fan's favourite often getting on the score sheet and constantly making chances game after game.
In the summer of 2010, rumours quickly materialised about the Spaniard wanting a return to boyhood club, Barcelona. These rumours were soon said to be true but Arsene Wenger worked his magic and convinced him to stay for one more season. After this season, he was sold back to Barcelona for a fee in the region of £35 million. Since his move to Nou Camp, Fabregas has had ups and downs. Although he was involved in many games for the Spanish giants, he has not started as many games as he would have hoped to but has won the Spanish League title and the Copa del Rey.
In this summer transfer window, Manchester United have demonstrated their keen interest in the Spaniard by submitting two bids, of £25 million and £30 million, both of which were rejected by Barcelona.
Barcelona have publicly stated that Fabregas is not for sale which would suggest that Fabregas himself wants to stay at Barcelona. However Manchester United are considering a £35 million move for the player although it goes against Barcelona's intent. Should Barcelona accept a bid from Manchester United, this transfer suddenly becomes more interesting due to the involvement Arsenal have with their former star.
Barcelona accepting a bid for Fabregas reportedly means that Arsenal will have the option to bring Fabregas back to the Emirates for a fee of £25 million. Fabregas may favour a move back to the Premier League but whether it is to his beloved Arsenal or rivals Manchester United will remain unknown unless a transfer is actually agreed.
Arsene Wenger said Arsenal would be on alert should this buy-back clause become active but he cannot see Fabregas moving this year. Nobody will know Fabregas more than Wenger so if there is a reliable source to listen to, then Wenger is the man who knows.
At this moment in time Manchester United remain interested in Fabregas's services but only time will reveal where Fabregas will be playing next season.
