Cesc Fabregas holds talks with Arsene Wenger as Arsenal plan £35m bid

Published 5 Comments

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is ready to launch a sensational £35m bid to sign his former captain Cesc Fabregas after being told by the Barcelona midfielder that he wants to make an emotional return to the Emirates, according to The Metro.

Fabregas has been consistently linked with Arsenal's fierce Premier League rivals Manchester United over the last few days thanks to an increasingly uncertain future at the Camp Nou, a situation not helped by Barca appointing Luis Enrique as their new manager earlier this week.

The 27-year-old have a buy-back clause on their ex-skipper and Wenger is now ready to make that count and after hearing personally from his protege earlier this week, if you believe the latest media reports concerning the Spanish international's future.

United tried on more than one occasion to persuade Fabregas to make a mega-money switch to Old Trafford last summer, but their efforts came up short as the Barca insisted he was committed to the fight for trophies in La Liga.

The Red Devils are still interested and the landscape at Barca has changed significantly since that rejection though, with Enrique looking to implement change quickly and reportedly still unconvinced Fabregas is ready for that change.

Wenger is now ready to pounce and feels he holds the edge over United despite their attempts to land a proven international playmaker, with the chance to sign Fabregas seemingly too good to turn down despite Arsenal already possessing strong options in the same position.

The Gunners already have £42.4m man Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere all capable of occupying the advanced central role Fabregas enjoyed to such devastating effect during his first 303-game spell in North London, but try telling that to excited Arsenal fans who would love to get a genuine hero back to lead the fight for silverware next season.
