This one never seemed to resolve at any point, which is what makes it so annoying. It just never goes away.
And really, it's not just been going on this summer. This transfer saga has been aggravating people for the past few summers, to the point where Arsenal supporters just want Cesc to leave so it's over with.
It's not Arsenal's fault for rejecting Barcelona's bids, their offers have simply been too low. But it's also not Barcelona's fault for wanting their star player back. It's purely Cesc Fabregas' fault that this saga has been the most annoying thing in world football this summer.
His indecisiveness is what fuels the saga. One day, he says he's happy at Arsenal. The next, he's dying to sign for Barcelona.
The most obnoxious thing is when the Barcelona players start to comment, with Xavi saying how Cesc is "desperate" to leave the Emirates, as if Fabregas is being tortured in North London or something. Not a great thing to hear as an Arsenal supporter.
I hate to say it, but because of Fabregas' long contract for Arsenal, this transfer saga could possibly go on for more summers to come.
I hope you guys enjoyed this article as a sort of oasis from all of the transfer rumours these days.
