Arsenal to Fight United for Fabregas

MOST COMMENTED

The Daily Mail introduces an interesting twist in the Cesc Fabregas transfer saga: there is a clause in the midfielder’s contract that actually gives his former club Arsenal the right of first refusal if the 26-year-old decides to leave Barcelona. This means that even if Manchester United bids $80 million for Fabregas and Barca accepts the offer, the Catalan club might be forced to sell him to Arsenal -- and for the cut-rate price of $38.2 million. Of course, Fabregas needs to agree to return to the Emirates, first.

According to the report, Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger believes Fabregas would choose to return to North London if he left Barcelona, and has inquired about the possibility, but he was told the playmaker wants to remain at the Camp Nou for at least one more season.

However, the Mail also reported on Friday that Fabregas has told friends in England that he wants quit La Liga for Old Trafford.
