Arsenal ace must force his own exit, says Samba star

Barcelona full-back Dani Alves says Arsenal should not stand in the way of Cesc Fabregas in his bid to return to Catalonia next season.

The Brazilian defender sympathises with the wantaway Spaniard, comparing his situation to that of his own when he was forced to engineer a move away from former club Sevilla three years ago.

The 24-year-old Gunners captain has made it clear he will only leave Arsenal on good terms, but retains hope that current manager Arsene Wenger will sanction a transfer back to Camp Nou.

But Alves says that Fabregas needs to be more single-minded if he is going to realise his dream of returning to Barcelona - the club he left for Arsenal nearly eight years ago.

"I forced my exit from Sevilla," Alves confirmed. "I saw the train passing by and I wanted to be in business class," he said in an interview with Spanish radio station RAC-1.


"I understand that he doesn't want to leave Arsenal on bad terms but I can understand why he would force the motor to come to Barca.

"Players always end up playing where they want to play and a club shouldn't keep an unhappy player."

Fabregas is not the only Arsenal player to be linked with the Emirates Stadium exit door this summer, with Samir Nasri also said to be considering his future after reported interest from Manchester United and Chelsea.

Wenger though, will do everything he can to keep his title-challenging squad together, as he bids to strengthen the Gunners ranks ahead of the new season.
