Arsenal hold talks with Cesc Fabregas' agent over £30m move

Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas was the subject of a meeting between his agent Darren Dein and former club Arsenal over the weekend, but according to Spanish publication Sport the talks between Dein and Arsene Wenger have failed to formalise concrete details over the midfielder's return to North London.

Fabregas is widely expected to leave Barcelona this summer and a move to the Premier League is thought to be at the forefront of his mind, although long-term interest from Manchester United has cooled since Louis van Gaal agreed to take charge at Old Trafford.

Arsenal fans would love Fabregas back at the Emirates and the Gunners have a €36m buy-back clause in the playmaker's contract, although any agreement over the signing of their ex-skipper is still some way off.

Wenger has got the ball rolling by speaking to Dein to confirm the 27-year-old is available and gauge whether his client would be receptive to a second spell with Arsenal, although any formal offer is still some way off.

Manchester City and Liverpool are also keeping close tabs on the situation and are believed to have also been contacted by Dein, all while Barca rather strangely refuse to publicly confirm the Spanish international linchpin is actually for sale.

Fans of close to all the Premier League's leading lights and of course Barca's wait for clarity on the Fabregas situation is likely to be long though, with the midfield maestro busy preparing for the World Cup while new Barca boss Luis Enrique formulates a plan for next season at the Camp Nou.
