When Barcelona decided last summer that they would sell Cesc Fabregas, it was Arsenal who were offered first refusal on the coveted Spain international who, of course, is their former captain.
Fabregas was keen to pursue a move back to the Emirates Stadium, the place he had left three years previous, but Arsene Wenger was far less willing to consider the acquisition of the ex-Arsenal favourite.
So, rather than a heralded return to Arsenal, Fabregas instead moved across London to Chelsea - a move unforgivable in the eyes of many Gunners. They do, however, have only their manager to blame.
This decision by the Arsenal boss not to sign Fabregas became somewhat more difficult to digest for the club’s supporters when Chelsea streaked to the Premier League title with plenty of gas to spare. It was a trophy Fabregas was never able to win with Arsenal.
Chelsea were confirmed as champions on the first weekend in May and with four games remaining, as a narrow victory over Crystal Palace moved Jose Mourinho’s side beyond their challengers - Arsenal among them.
But it was not until this weekend that the Chelsea players were awarded their crown - and medals - and this came after the final game of the campaign against Sunderland at Stamford Bridge.
And with this came the moment that Arsenal fans would rather forget - Fabregas in the colours of Chelsea, winners medal around his neck and Premier League trophy in hand. Maybe next season, fellas.
