Barca baulks at Fabregas Price? Arsenal Doesn’t Care…
This was the headline last night from the Sun
Arsenal’s hopes of getting 40 million pounds for Cesc Fabregas were fading fast last night.
but I’m pretty sure they have it backwards, what it should have said is this…
Barcelona’s hopes of getting Cesc Fabregas were fading last night because they refuse to pay 40 million pounds
Since when do Barcelona control this transfer saga, Arsenal are the ones with the player and the price they have set, if anything they should be happy the price is as low as 40 million! I’m not sure why we haven’t gone for a player plus cash deal since they obviously won’t give us the right amount of cash. We could have a ready replacement that would even appease Van Persie if we were to get Afellay in the deal.
Afellay wouldn’t have to much trouble adjusting either, he’s a strong midfielder with a great shot and can play in a couple different positions.
I’ve come to peace with the fact that Fabregas will leave but I feel Afellay would definitely ease the blow. What do you think of Afellay? Good enough for Arsenal?
