Famous Arsenal fan and celebrity journalist Piers Morgan has taken to Twitter to urge Francesc Fabregas to reject a move to Chelsea, despite various sources stating that he has already agreed a deal.
Reports from late last night stated that even members of the Spanish national team camp - namely Gerard Pique and Vicente del Bosque were uttering speculation that Fabregas had agreed to join Jose Mourinho’s revolution at Stamford Bridge, and thus the vast majority of Gunners fans have used social media as a platform to vent their frustrations at the idea of their former captain joining one of their bitter rivals. Naturally Morgan, who is famed for his frequent opinionated tweets on Arsenal, decided to get in on the action.
The former Daily Mirror editor simply tweeted: “DON’T DO IT @cesc4official.”
It’s clear to see why the notion of Fabregas signing of the dotted line at Chelsea is disturbing to the Arsenal faithful, but fans of the north London giants might instead be directing their anger at why Arsene Wenger hasn’t moved to make the transfer more difficult. It’s said that the Gunners retain a first-refusal option for their ex-skipper, as part of the deal which saw him depart the Emirates Stadium for Barcelona in 2011. If that’s the case then one can assume that the Frenchman had the chance to sign the playmaker, only to decline the option to do so.
