Wenger Confirms Cesc Departure
Arsenal have tonight confirmed the agreement to sell Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona.
What we all knew deep down has now been made official. Barring Cesc failing a medical or the extremely unlikely event of not being able to agree personal terms, the our captain will be sold to the Spanish Champions.
Despite Arsene Wenger claiming on Friday that he didn`t expect anyone to leave the club, the Frenchman revealed the imminent departure.
'We have been clear that we didn't want Cesc to leave and that remains the case. However, we understand Cesc's desire to move to his home town club and have now accepted an offer from Barcelona. We thank Cesc for his contribution at Arsenal and wish him future success.'
So that`s that, time to forget about Cesc and move forward.
Truth be told it`s kind of a relief.
