Following the lifting of Barcelona's transfer ban, Cesc Fabregas could be on his way out to make way for summer targets David Luiz and Alex Halilovic.
This morning it was announced that the Catalan club would appeal against their transfer ban and this has allowed them to do business from July 1 until a decision is confirmed by FIFA.
Barcelona are now back in the race to sign Chelsea centre back, David Luiz - a player who has been at the top of their shortlist.
To fund this deal, the Spanish giants could send Fabregas the other way who has been heavily linked with Manchester United and former club Arsenal.
The Spaniard returned to his home club in 2011, leaving the Gunners with a price tag of £35million. However, not all the fans have taken to the midfielder and according to the Spanish paper, Marca, 50% of fans want him to leave.
Although he isn't loved by everyone in Spain, he has many fans in the Premier League, in particularly Manchester United.
The Red Devils launched two bids for him last summer, bidding £30 million however they were rejected. But since then, the club have had a change in President with Josep Bartomeu replacing the long serving Sandro Rosell in January.
Tata Martino is set to leave the Nou Camp this summer and so questions will be asked whether the new man in charge will have Fabregas set in their plans.
Arsenal remain on the radar for their former captain as Arsene Wenger looks to bring back some leadership which has been missing from this year's campaign.
