Four years out of playing Barcelona in the Champions League, now Arsenal is fighting a different fight with the Catalan club.  

For the past year Arsenal has been dealing with acquisitions from Barcelona that star player Cesc Fabregas wants to come back to the club where it all began.

Fabregas began his career in the Catalan youth system alongside many players who currently play for Barcelona.  The youth system is where he emerged as one of the best in the world, but rough around the edges.

The problem for Arsenal is that if Fabregas leaves the club, everything that coach Arsene Wenger has been working towards and building up is going to be destroyed. He is focal point in the lineup for Wenger and has done so much with Arsenal.

With no trophies won in a while and Barcelona wining six last year, it isn't that hard to realize why he wants out of Arsenal.  Although he better hope that Barcelona has reserved him a spot in the star studded midfield, if not he will be seeing very little playing time.

Now, the decision has been put into the hands of Wenger.  

With Fabregas leaving for South Africa with Spain in a few days, he is trying to clear his name of anything that could or would be a distraction.  As Spain is one of the favorites to the Cup this year.

Fabregas knows what he has done in building the current Arsenal team. He knows that he owes it to the team to stay. But, is this move just to win a trophy?

Or is it about the big paycheck Barcelona can give him why he is ridding the bench?

Fabregas shouldn't think so fast about moving, it could end up to haunt him!
