Barcelona Transfer News: Barcelona's Stance Will Continue Tiring Fabregas Drama
Barcelona must think Arsene Wenger is an utter fool.
It is the only explanation for the Spanish side's actions in the ongoing Cesc Fabregas saga.
Arsenal has set a clear asking price, but despite that, Barca has managed to consistently underbid for the star midfielder.
Wenger has responded, making it clear that he won't sell for anything less than his demands, but it hasn't stopped more halfbrained ideas from developing at the Nou Camp.
Per Tribal Football:
Their previous offer of €29 million plus €6 million based on the compensation they believe Arsenal owe for the signings of Hector Bellerin and Jon Miquel Toral has been rejected by the Gunners.
With the deadlock showing no signs of breaking, Barca directors discussed on the weekend the prospect of raising their initial cash offer to €34 million plus €6 million in bonuses, says El Mundo Deportivo.
The new offer has not been drawn up, but Barca know they need to find a solution to speed up negotiations.
What part of this does Barcelona not get?
Either put up the money, or back away from the negotiating table.
It isn't a hard concept to grasp, yet the club has continued to treat Wenger's demands with a complete lack of respect, while demanding it from other clubs.
It is hypocrisy at its finest, yet Barca hasn't seemed to grasp that as of late.
They will continue to bid less than what Fabregas is worth, all while trying to make Wenger out to be the villain, because that's what they do best.
Barcelona may preach that they're more than a club, but in reality, they're worse, because at least others don't put on a facade, all the while insulting the rest of the world's top sides.
If Barca doesn't want to pay what Fabregas is worth, that's fine, but stop dragging this on and making it more painful for everyone involved.
The Spanish side just wants to save face for their supporters, who would love nothing more than to see Fabregas back at his boyhood club.
Too bad Barcelona doesn't have the fortitude to do what it takes to force a transfer.
Pay up or shut up, it's that simple.
