Nobody seems happy here in the Football Transfer Tavern after the latest claim from Metro.
The publication seem to think that Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas is on his way back to London.
Arsenal fans are not happy with the suggestion that their former skipper may be joining a rival club and Chelsea fans seem to think that they will find it hard to take to a player who spent time both at Arsenal and Barcelona.
One of our punters notes that despite the troubled relationship between Jose Mourinho and the midfielder, for the reported £200,000 per week, we could certainly put animosity aside if we were Fabregas!
Not only that but the player will actually get the chance to impress consistently at Chelsea whereas during his time at the Camp Nou, he was mainly relegated to a secondary role.
Our La Liga fans note that even when starting games, Cesc was often used as a scapegoat by the fans and the media should anything go wrong.
Given Chelsea and Mourinho need to replace Frank Lampard in the middle of the park, we think that it could be the ideal chance for the Blues to do that despite being linked with both Atletico Madrid’s Koke and Juventus’ Paul Pogba as well.
Gerard Pique was reportedly caught on Spanish TV claiming the move would be going ahead, so we think fans better get used to the idea of Fabregas coming back to England.
Chelsea fans. Will a couple of good performances from Cesc make you forget his undesirable connections? Arsenal fans. Will you be doing a Liverpool faithful and burning your Cesc shirts in a bin? Let us know your thoughts below.
