Arsenal F.C. have rejected an offer from Barcelona for Cesc Fabregas. Here is the official word on Arsenal.com.
Arsenal Football Club have today released the following statement about Cesc Fabregas:
“Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas is under contract with the Club until the summer of 2015. He is a highly-valued member of the team and part of our future plans.
“We have followed recent speculation linking Cesc with a move away from the Club but as there has never been any official approach for him, only two informal exchanges, in which we made it abundantly clear that we have no interest in transferring Cesc, we have refrained from publicly passing comment. However, yesterday evening we received an offer from Barcelona for Cesc and in response, we immediately and resolutely told them once again that we have no intention of selling our captain.
“To be clear, we will not make any kind of counterproposal or enter into any discussion. Barcelona have publicly stated that they will respect our position and we expect that they will keep their word.”
I believe Cesc is going to be a gooner next season just like Bobby said. I am really happy that we are going to keep him, unless Arsenal are trying to delay a transfer until after the World Cup. I believe Cesc will stay for a couple more years and then go to Barca but who cares? We would have Ramsey fully developed and maybe have another Cesc in the squad? I don’t know because I can’t tell the future, but I do know one thing. We have Aaron Ramsey.
