Cesc Threatens to Go on Strike
Fabregas is threatening to do an Anelka and go on strike if Arsenal do not agree to sell him to Barcelona. The words did not come from Cesc but from one of his entourage and reported in the Catalan press.
Despite Cesc’s protestations that he is happy at Arsenal and any move will be up to Wenger to decide, clearly he is lying and if he refused to return to training then he will join the likes of Anelka in the list of hated ex-Arsenal players.
This will be a shame and a sorry end to his career at Arsenal, a club that signed him at 16, and gave him the stage upon which to display his talents. Remember Arsenal sold Vieira to allow Cesc the freedom of midfield, a period of time that has coincided with our drought of trophies.
Cesc is putting Wenger, supposedly his mentor, into a position in which we will have to accept a fee of around £30M. Wenger and Arsenal should make it clear to Cesc and Barcelona that we have a valuation for Fabregas and that value must be met, be it cash and players or straight cash. If Cesc does not accept this then he needs to hand in a transfer request and stop hiding comments which clearly are just lies.
Arsenal Football Club have survived the departure of greater players than Cesc, players who have left with dignity.
