Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has hit another nail in the coffin to FC Barcelona’s desire to bring Cesc Fabregas back to his boyhood club. In an interview to the English club’s official site, Arsenal.com, Wenger said, “He [Fabregas] is a very important player for us, he is our captain and we have worked very hard [for him] to be the future of our team and that is why we are always adamant about [not] letting him go.”
Early in June, Fabregas had requested Wenger to facilitate a move which would see him return to his native place. But Fabregas’s plea has hit a roadblock as Arsenal is unwilling to let go off their valuable asset. Wenger dismissed all the speculations consistently reported in Catalan publications such as Sport and El Mundo Deportivo and insisted that all the reports were nothing but “noise.” “We have learned about that and I believe that in a big club you have to live with those kind of noises without being disturbed.”
Barcelona have already seen a bid of £29m for the highly-rated 23-year-old midfielder rejected. Arsenal have time and again stated that Fabregas has five years left on his contract and they expect him to abide by it.
