There has been massive reports recently claiming that the future of Arsenal former captain Cesc Fabregas is heading for the rocks at Barcelona with supporters urging the club to sell the midfielder in the summer according to the Express.
Andres Iniesta had earlier admitted that Barcelona teammate Cesc Fabregas is hurt being targeted by the boo-boys after the Spanish International midfielder was jeered during Barca’s weekend win over Athletic Bilbao by Nou Camp fans.
“Of course it hurts to see Cesc jeered,” said Iniesta.
“You try to ignore it and hope it does not happen, but these situations are not comfortable.
“Nevertheless, I think it’s isolated. I do not think it’s a personal situation for him. We are in a rare season that depends on everything around us now.”
Further confirmation on Fabregas’ situation at the Nou Camp was given by fellow teammate Gerard Pique who voiced his displeasure over Fabregas’ treatment from the fans and demanded the former Arsenal captain be left alone and instead the fans should hold all players responsible for the downturn in fortunes of the club.
“It isn’t good to have fans whistling you- particularly at home,” the former Manchester United player started. “I think it is a mistake to focus on just one player. Blame it on the players, OK, but not just Cesc.” he said.
“The season has not been good and I think we are all part of a group that haven’t quite got things right,”.
Fabregas has netted 8 goals with 12 assists in 32 games this season for the Spanish giants and the fans have somewhat brushed this good record aside – not appreciating him due to their club being on the verge of winning nothing this season. And instead of blaming the whole team, a significant number of fans have picked the former Arsenal star aside as is to blame for their clubs’ misfortune.
This development will only push the former Arsenal captain more to the exit door and if he eventually decides to do so, Arsenal is being touted as his most-likely destination with Wenger apparently desperate on resigning his former captain.
If the Spanish giants go with the fans wishes and decide to let go of Fabregas, his likely destination would certainly be the Emirates as the player has in the past reiterate his desire to return to Arsenal where he made a name for himself, captained the team and was adored by the fans.
Arsenal fans and manager would certainly not mind the idea of their former captain and midfield supremo, who made over 200 appearances for the club before his departure, returning to the club, a situation which would see the Catalan native partner with the like of Ozil, Ramsey and Wilshere at the middle of the park, improving our chances to recapture the EPL title next season, a title which we last won in the 2003/2004 season.
