Cesc Fabregas 'Will Ask Arsenal for Barcelona Transfer' Within 48 Hours

Daniel GoochAnalyst IOctober 30, 2016

Cesc Fabregas has been at the centre of one of the biggest and most high profile transfer watches this summer.

He is set to repeat his plea to his Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger for a transfer to Barcelona within the next two days.

Following a summer of uncertainty over Cesc's future at Arsenal. He is set to re-join the squad for preseason training this weekend, but may not train with them for the rest of the season.

It is understood that he will repeat his plea to manager Arsene Wenger to join Barcelona in the next 48 hours (according to Sky Sports sources). 

Even if Fabregas' request to move is accepted, Arsenal has so far refused to negotiate with the Spanish Giants.

Wenger has already made a statement to Barca, saying he is going to do whatever it takes to hold onto his captain, and has already turned down a £30 million bid.

Wenger hit out yesterday saying, "I am very happy with Cesc and we are all very happy at the club with Cesc.

"He is a very important player for us, he is our captain and we have worked very hard [for him] to be the future of our team and that is why we are always adamant about [not] letting him go."

Fabregas has had little to say about his future since the World Cup, but all the rumours flying about kind of speak for him.
