Latest Fabregas bid fails

2011-08-05 12:31

London - Barcelona's latest attempt to lure Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas to the Nou Camp has been rejected by the London club, reports suggested on Friday.

According to Sky Sports, Arsenal are standing firm on the £40 million price tag they have placed on the Spanish midfielder.

European champions Barcelona had already failed with an offer of around £30 million, and an improved reported bid of €29 million euros plus six million euros in future add-ons has also failed to tempt the Gunners.

Fabregas, who is keen to move, has reportedly pledged three million euros of his own money to help secure the deal.

But the overall package - worth 38million euros - is still some €7 million short of what the Premier League club are demanding.

    Come on now Cesc,get over it.You are not going to Barca,they can't afford you, and you will spend the season on the bench if you do go there.Commit to the Gunners, play out of your tree, unlike last season, and get your name and reputation back where it should be.You are contracted to Arsenal,commit and play.Enough now.

    If Barca find you too expensive then Orlando Pirates will step in, ask Bennie for it.Remember they also want to become the African Barcelona,you would still feel at home.Think 'bout it Cesc.

    I think it's time to let him go before his reluctance to represent the club sees Arsenal missing out on the top 4. The club is bigger than one individual, besides Barca are correct on the pricing after his injury woes from last season, he's a year older and many injuries later

      You can't tell me that his value is the same as Andy Carroll? World of difference.What did Torres go for? doesn't compare with Cesc.If Cesc was allowed to go to Man Utd, Man City or Chelsea, then you would realise true value.It's a difficult one,he only wants to go to Barca, so he must take the rough with the smooth.

    Cesc you are injury prone so stick it out with Arsenal. Really I cannot see who you gonna replace in the Barca side.

    Typical Barca. They have been tapping Cesc up for way to long. It is very simple time to either put up or shut up. 40 million is the asking price deal with it or leave him be.

    Retaliate. Everytime you get the ball kick it to the stands. Score own goals. Foul your own players. Prepare yourself to be benched. Fake injuries. All this to help Arse-nal's cause of winning trophies. Bunch of loosers. English teams always over-pricing players.
