Wenger Confirms Cesc Departure

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.

Think I'm going to avoid the net for a couple of days, really don't want to hear the Cesc interviews or the crap that's going to without a doubt come out of the Farca camp.

Fabregas is now dead to me, I don't have to give you a reason why.

All eyes on Wenger now to bring in some world class talent. I honestly wish Cesc all the best at Barca. To be missing out on playing for your boyhood club that is dominating football and seeing them lift trophy after trophy whilst you're at a club that is all about profit must be frustrating.

A bollox, he said he wanted to win things at Arsenal. Yet again the modern football has shown himself to have no real strength of character. Cesc is such a nice guy and an amazing player that I can't hate him, but it's going to rip my heart out of my chest to see him pull on that Barca shirt, especially after the bad taste that this whole saga leaves behind.

From a Spurs fan, symapthise with you guys here, I don't think Wenger or the Arsenal board could have done any much more on the Fabregas situation...

So I assume Wenger will spend the money on a quality replacement right? I mean, Barcelona have just spend £35mill to bag the best midfielder in the PL, and they really, really don't need him. So seeing as we really, really needed him Wenger will go and spend £30mill (if he has to) on a replacement, right? It should be a no brainer but the fact we are wondering whether Wenger will go bargain hunting even though he has big funds this at his disposal says it all really.

How about converting Tevez into a floating AM? We would only have him for a year as that seems to be his attention span but it would be a year for Ramsey to develop further. I know the wages would probably halt it but I'm sure we could come to some arrangement...his own terminal at Heathrow so he can get home?

See you Cesc. We won't have to see your "I don't want to be at this club" face any more. In the end you were good, but not good enough or fit enough to win us something.
