Former Gunner could be set for return

Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas’ future will be decided next week, with Manchester United and Arsenal waiting for the green light to make a bid.

The former Gunners captain will meet his current boss, Tito Vilanova, next week, after the La Liga season finishes this weekend, and will discuss his future at the Nou Camp, the Mirror claims.


The Spanish midfielder has found himself frustrated this season after being left out of the side in the Champions League on several occasions, as well as many big games domestically.

With next season being a World Cup year, the Spain star knows he has to play in as many games as he can.

The Catalan club do not want to sell the 26-year-old, but new United boss David Moyes is a keen admirer of his talents and could offer the best deal to him, with Manchester City and Chelsea both also rumoured to be interested, the newspaper claims.

However, his former side have first refusal on him, meaning that should any bid be made for his services, they would be offered him first.

Fabregas’ £40million move to the club which gave him his platform as a youngster could now lose the Spaniards between £15million and £20million should the Londoners take up the option to sign him.


It is believed that the former Emirates hero would not want to move to any English club other than Arsenal, after witnessing his former team mate Robin van Persie become a hated figure amongst the Gunners faithful when he moved to the Red Devils.

The midfielder has admitted that he would love a reunion with his former side, and with his future in doubt, it has become a possibility.

The rumoured interest from the champions may force Arsene Wenger to bring back Fabregas, even though he is reluctant to sign players he has already sold.

The newspaper reiterates how he has only ever re-signed Sol Campbell, Thierry Henry and Jens Lehmann.
