Well the thing that we all were anticipating has come to pass. Barcelona has made their first bid for Fabregas according to The Sun. This morning, The Sun is reporting that Barcelona have made an initial offer for Fabregas worth only £27 million, Which of course was rejected by us. They also say that Barca is willing to go to £30 million (like we care!). This bid comes in after Sandro Rosell, Barca’s President, said that Barcelona don’t have the money to purchase Fabregas and will be bidding less than they did the last time.
However, everyone has missed the real breaking news! Barcelona is also willing to offer Lionel Messi in addition to the £27 million. Lionel Messi, according to Barcelona, isn’t the player he was due to wear and tear in the last season and Barcelona appears now to cash in on him before his value further drops. Despite the offer, Arsenal is reluctant to sell Fabregas as there is no use in buying a devalued product, which has left Barcelona dumbstruck!
Jokes aside, in all this I am really getting frustrated with Fabregas’ stance. I know he hasn’t directly requested a move but all his statements have been ambiguous. If he wants to really move, he should man up, put up a request and go. If not, say it loudly that he doesn’t want to go to Barca till at least his contract is not over. And after such disgrace, no sane man will want to go to Barcelona!
And as far as Arsenal is concerned, if we rejected a bid last time, how are we going to agree to something less this time? Are they f***ing mental or are we a club who can be toyed around with and humiliated along with the players. They are even humiliating themselves but you can expect that from Barca. If a certain nobody is valued at £40 million, a certain striker can go for £50 million and one for £35 million, where is the justice in offering £27 million for one of the world’s best midfielders? If you don’t have the money, forget about him. Buy something that you can. This is the basic rule of buying. Geez! Barcelona can play the best football but can’t understand this simple thing!
