The Metro never stop with the sensational claims for us here in the Football Transfer Tavern and today is no different. The publication report that Cesc Fabregas will be going nowhere this summer – according to his agent.
The former Arsenal skipper has been linked with a move back to the Premier League and after failing to dislodge midfield sensations Xavi and Andres Iniesta from the heart of the Catalan side, we understand why. Arsene Wenger had been keen on a move for his former star man and it is thought that the first option to buy, should Barcelona sell the player would be for the Gunners, yet the North London side seem to be firstly focusing on getting Luis Suarez to join the club.
David Moyes is a big fan of the player and is fully aware that with the talent and vision someone like the Spanish International has, a huge difference could be make to his side, especially in crunch games or European competition. After missing out on fellow Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara, Moyes made a couple of bids for Cesc and saw them rejected out of hand by Barcelona.
Now it seems that the player himself has admitted he wants to stay and fight for his place under new boss Tato Matino and his agent Darren Dein noted that Cesc would be going nowhere. Indeed Cesc has been busy tweeting about how much he is enjoying pre season.
