Arsene Wenger has admitted that Arsenal are in negotiations with Barcelona over the sale of Cesc Fabregas, after Xavi revealed the skipper is suffering in London.
“If there are transfer negotiations between two clubs I don't think it's helpful to have other players involved,” Wenger said, effectively admitting that discussions are taking place over Fabregas leaving Arsenal in the summer.
In a transfer saga that seems to have continued for years now, Fabregas has made his intentions to move to Barcelona very clear. And the only red tape left in a deal for the Arsenal skipper is the price Wenger will let him leave for.
While Wenger has done all he can to keep his star midfielder, according to the Metro the manager has agreed to sell Fabregas for £45 million. But Barcelona are reportedly hoping to get the price down to the vicinity of £30 million, in a possible player-plus-cash deal.
Should Fabregas move to Barcelona, Arsenal will be left searching for both a midfielder and a left-back, after losing Gael Clichy to Manchester City.
