Once again, the media is buzzing with reports of Cesc Fabregas moving away from Barcelona to Arsenal and perhaps, one or two other English clubs. More than any other time in the past, the 27 year old Spanish midfielder is being linked with a move to Arsenal and this time around it could happen. Here are five reasons why Arsenal will sign Fabregas this summer.
His release clause
Arsenal is reported to have inserted into Fabregas’ contract when he was joining Barca a buy back clause pegged at £25 Million and that is a bargain considering his class and quality. Not many players in the same class as the former Arsenal man will come that cheap and Arsene is not the type to allow a bargain slip off once the opportunity comes knocking on his door. Aside the buy back clause, we also have a first refusal on him which means Barca can not sell him to any other club unless we are not interested in activating our right.
Cesc will only play for two clubs (Arsenal and Barca)
Cesc himself has declared on a couple of occasions that he would only play for two clubs; Arsenal and Barca. This indicates that the 27 year old may find it too difficult to sign for any other English club.
Wenger is staying another three years
Two days ago, the boss put pen to paper on a new deal, which will see him remain at the club for the next three seasons. This is enough reason to convince the 27 year old to return to his former club considering the fact that he still enjoys a close relationship with Wenger. Cesc sees Wenger as a father a figure, and won’t reject another opportunity to work with him a second time.
Arsenal now have a better squad
Arsenal now have a better set of players talented enough to rule the EPL in the next two to three years and Cesc could see this as a big attraction. Moreover, a squad as talented as the current Arsenal team is an attraction for any player in the world.
Barca no longer wants him
Another reason why Arsenal will sign the 27 year old midfielder is due to the fact that he no longer enjoys the support of the Barca hierarchy, which could affect his game. Cesc owes his development to Wenger and Arsenal, and could see a return as the only way to return to his glory days once again.
