Arsenal: Fabregas not for sale

2010-06-02 17:43

London - Arsenal says it has "no intention" of selling captain Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona, rejecting a formal offer from the Spanish champion for the midfielder.

Arsenal said in a statement Wednesday that Fabregas is "a highly valued member of the team and part of our future plans." It stressed that the Spain midfielder is under contract until 2015 and that it expects Barcelona to "respect our position."

Barcelona club director general Joan Oliver said the club had made a written offer to Arsenal on Tuesday at the start of the official transfer window.

Oliver said "everybody knows that Cesc wants to sign for Barcelona and that we also want him to come here."

The 23-year-old Fabregas left Barcelona for Arsenal when he was 16.

    Fabregas should not leave because he is currently the backbone of the team if he leaves he will make wengers ambitions futal.

    I am a supporter of Arsenal but this is now becoming endemic on Wenger's part that he is reluctant to let any of the good players leave the club which is not fair to the players. Arsenal is more of a breeding ground for teams that are hungry to win honours and this is a goal for every player. Arsenal should give contracts that are at par with the other big teams and retain quality players and this should be a motivating factor for good players to stay at the club

    Please Wenger do not disappoint me now by letting Fabregas to go. Arsenal must not be seen as a developer team for other teams. Fabregas should not be for sale as he is arsenal asset as Henry in the past.
