When will the Fabregas transfer saga end?

With Barcelona triumphing in Europe yet again, many would think that the Catalan giants would not need to make any new signings, or changes to such a supreme squat. However, for a second successive year rumours about Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas have surfaced.

The Spanish midfielder and former Barca boy has certainly proved himslef to be one of the best players in the world. All the hype over the move kicked off last year after post World Cup celebrations where Spanish team members and Barcelona defenders Carlos Puyol and Gerrard Pique placed a Barcelona jersey on Fabregas. Although Fab claimed it to be a joke, he was quoted as saying that "he would love to play for Barcelona one day" further adding to the speculation.

Last season Barcelona were told by Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger that Fabregas was not for sale under any circumstances. Arsenal were able to hold onto their playmaker, but went on to once again fail in winning any silverware. With Fabregas and Arsenal once again without any trophies, it would seem that the number 4 is on the verge of leaving. Barcelona have announced a 45million dollar for this season, suggesting that perhaps a player could be included in a deal for the Spanish midfielder.

Questions also lie to where he would play, in a midfield which is maticulous in its passing and attacking. What is for certain though is that Fabregas will not come cheap...... where ever he goes!
