Maybe It's Time To Worry About Barcelona?

Maybe It's Time To Worry About Barcelona?

On a day when Arsene Wenger claimed he has no concerns over the most recent rumours that Cesc is about to embark on the next step on the journey through his career at his home town club of Barcelona, unnervingly, the Spanish giants have also claimed there is no truth in the rumour.

As Fabregas came to Arsenal as a very young boy, he made no secrets that he would one day like to play in the top flight of Spanish football with his former team. His honesty has led to an annual precession of total bollocks as the leaders of Barca clamour for votes for their upcoming elections.

Some of the shenanigans that come out of Camp Nou are nothing short of disgraceful, so the following statement taken from their official website scares the living shit out of me.

'Given the exceptional repercussions created by the stories that have appeared in different media with respect to an agreement with Arsenal FC player Cesc Fabregas, FCB flatly denies that there have been any negotiations or agreements with the player.

'In accordance with FIFA regulations, FC Barcelona's contract policy has always made it a priority to negotiate with the club of origin before making any particular agreement with the player.

'FC Barcelona wishes to stress that it has always maintained excellent institutional relations with Arsenal FC.'

Hmmm. Is that more or less worrying?

I can see the hand of Gazidis in this. I read somewhere that he was getting involved in this by telling Barca to pipe down. Its good that the club is at least trying to do something about these rumours. Whether we should get worried or not depends purely on Cesc and how much faith and trust we have in him. Do we trust him to go about this (inevitable) transfer in a proper manner? I do, so when that day comes (perhaps in another 2 seasons, perhaps less), he will handle it well. Lets focus on the Pool game, for starters.

I think you're right SW .... and about time too. We've let European clubs take the ***** out of us for too long now, it's about time we laid down the law.

Arsenal wouldn't sell for less than 50-60 million & Barca wouldn't pay that for a benchwarmer. He's brilliant for us but he wouldn't get in their first team as Hleb found out. He will go back but not until either Xavi or Iniesta retire/leave.

Incredibly, this is all because one Spanish radio station heard a 'transfer rumour'... However much Cesc is frustrated I can't see him leaving yet. I used to be scared he would be going around now but I'm now getting more and more confident that he'll stay till his late 20's or further. He's a genuine chap and every time we doubt him, he'll go and score then run over to our fans and everything about him says "I'm 100% staying here and I'm going nowhere till we have achieved something special" I'm offering anyone that thinks he'll leave this summer a tenner bet (subject to terms conditions; first 10 people only; no spuds)!

I'm told the woman that was recently appointed as the club's lawyer is one scary beatch. The kind that would insist on being the man in a sexual scenario!

I just cant see where hed fit into their side. Cesc is world class but in Barcas system they play 2 roaming midfielders and a holding player, and Xavi and Iniesta currently hold those positions to amazing effect. I think we would actually sell for less - £40million would be hard to reject. But i cant see him leaving till either Xavi retires (years) or Guardiola leaves which wont be for at least 2 seasons.

"I'm told the woman that was recently appointed as the club's lawyer is one scary beatch" -- 'bout time, just what the club needed! :-D Have to echo AG's and BP's comments. Every time this subject comes up I always wonder just how satisfied Cesc could be at Barca right now - not being the main man, not being the principal dictator of play, often coming on as sub only, starting only some games (mainly cup games). AW has built this team around Cesc's creative vision, he won't have that at Barca -- nor Real Madrid, for that matter. He'll have Cronaldo and Kaka competing with him. I'm amazed at that statement on Barca's official website, that's something you never see them do (officially negating rumours that are part of a presidential election race to garner votes).
