Barcelona president, Joan Laporta claims he and his manager have made our club captain, Cesc Fabregas their number 1 summer transfer target, and laughably goes on to claim they have respect for the Gunners.
In true Barca tapping-up style (which will surprise no-one) Laporta claims that Cesc has Barcelona in his blood, and will continue to court the world class midfielder, despite Gunners play maker stating quite clearly, on over 300 occasions in the past two weeks, that he is going nowhere.
"Cesc Fabregas has the Barcelona DNA in his body and we know that he wants to play for this club,' Laporta claimed.
'At the moment he is the leader at Arsenal and a very important player for them. But Cesc is wanted by me, by the coach Pep Guardiola and by the sport director Txiki Begiristain.'
'We are concentrating all of our efforts on it, but at the same time we have a lot of respect for Arsenal.'
'We have positive relations with Arsenal so it will not be an easy topic to talk to them about.'
Barcelona have a yearly tradition of trying to unsettle Arsenal players, yet no-one seems willing to do anything about it.
