Cesc: There Was No Way Arsenal Would Sell Me
According to the Daily Mail, Cesc Fabregas claims that 'there was no way' Arsenal ever had any intentions of letting the midfielder join the massive (tossers) Spanish club, Barcelona.
The summer saw relentless speculation (that will not go away until Fabregas finally leaves) that Cesc was actively seeking a move away from North London to his home town club of Barcelona. The longer the rumours persisted with little to no comment coming from camp Fabregas, the more we knew it was true.
Fabregas now confirms, as if we didn't know, that his intentions were to leave Arsenal, he also confirms that when it came to Arsenal's firm stance on the player, that we were all trousers and no mouth.
Cesc said in The Daily Mail: 'Barcelona did all they could to sign me but Arsenal told me I had to stay, that there was no way they were going to let me go.
'In the end I had to stay but the content of my conversation with Arsene Wenger will remain private.'
We all know that the sad conclusion to this story is probably only 12 months or so away, but another upsetting point is that Fabregas is so blinded by love that he is unable to see how very little Barcelona did to sign him.
