It appears that Cesc Fabregas' agent has been seeking a bumper pay day by trying to negotiate a deal for Cesc to move to Madrid, aparently without consulting him first.
Joseba Diaz reckons that Fabregas would be interested but the agent does not do the dirty on Arsenal. Errr......right then.
'We had meetings before the elections and there would be no problems on our side, but now they have to speak to Arsenal and see what they say,' Diaz told Marca.
'We have always said we are very thankful to Arsenal. We would never try a dirty trick on Arsenal and whatever has to happen will happen.'
'I don't think Arsenal would want to let the player go for all the gold in the world and we'll have to wait and see now.'
'If the player wants to go to Real Madrid I don't think the negotiations will take very long. The situation is not easy, but in life nothing is impossible.'
'I can't answer for Cesc because imagine if I say he wants to play for Real Madrid and he then has to stay at Arsenal or if I say he doesn't want to play for Real Madrid and then he signs tomorrow,' he continued.
'You have to be intelligent.'
'It's very difficult when the best team in the world comes knocking to say no.'
'What's obvious is that Real Madrid have come knocking at Cesc's door and that Cesc obviously thinks Real Madrid are a great team.'
'He has always said that he would like to return to Spain, but whether that will be this year, next year or in two years' time, I don't know.'
For me, this is one of two possibilities. 1. This is Fabregas' greedy agent trying to engineer a move that would see him pockets millions. or 2. This is more fabricated nonsense from Real Madrid's very own daily rag in an attempt to unsettle the lad.
It's safe to say, that having only revealed his new number yesterday (not to mention saying countless times he is happy at Arsenal)he will be a Gooner this coming season.
