Cesc Fabregas has pleaded with Arsene Wenger to leave Arsenal, as the manager accepts that he will most likely lose his skipper to Barcelona, according to the Daily Mirror.

Fabregas has long been in a transfer tussle over a move to the Spanish giants, with Barcelona star Xavi getting involved in the fight this week by claiming his Spanish teammate was ‘suffering’ in London.

And while Arsenal have been desperately trying to hold on to their captain, Fabregas has now reportedly taken the step of speaking to Wenger, and making an emotional plea to leave the Gunners for the town he grew up in.


And while Arsenal are looking down the barrel of losing Gael Clichy, Fabregas and possibly Samir Nasri this summer, Wenger will have a decent transfer budget, with the London club demanding £40 million for Fabregas.

Another point that Arsenal need to consider is that if they keep Fabregas for another season, the skipper will no doubt be connected to Barcelona again next summer.

And the Spanish side won’t offer as much money for the playmaker, sighting the fact that Fabregas’ contract runs out in just two years (2014).

But Wenger reportedly now has an understanding with Fabregas, that should Barcelona make the right offer for the Spain international, he will be allowed to leave.
