The long drawn saga of will-he, won’t-he finally ended with Fabregas heading home to Barcelona. He expressed his gratitude to Arsenal where he came in as a boy and returned home as a man. The only creative midfielder left in the top drawer of EPL now heads to Spain.
If you are an Arsenal fan I am sure you are also seeing the huge void left behind by Cesc. Will Wenger sign a creative player to replace Fabregas or does he think we can manage with Ramsey and Wilshere. I hope he buys an established midfielder.
Apparently by afternoon, all the no. 4 jerseys in the official shop of FC Barcelona were sold out as per Sport.
Cesc Fabregas joins a long list of Arsenal players who have moved to Barcelona. Infact it represents about 41% of transfer income received by Arsenal, amounting to be about 128 million Euros!!! The list reads like this – (all in Euros)
Marc Overmars – 40 million
Emmanuel Petit – 15 million
Gio Van Bronckhorst – free
Thierry Henry – 24 million
Alexander Hleb – 15 million
Cesc Fabregas – 34-39 million
I am gonna miss this classy player in our team and I wonder if we would ever get a better passer of the ball than Cesc. All the best Cesc!
