    If Cesc come back my word we will be stacked in central midfield...but still without a proper DM besides Flamini!

    Özil, Cesc, Cazorla, Ramsey, Wilshere, Ox, Rosicky and Gnabry are capable of playing CAM with Zelalem and Crowley two of the best prospects we've had for years.
    Maybe Fabregas will play out wide?

    Surely you don't really need Cesc? Unless Wenger is planning on turning him into a DM (worked well with Arteta lol) it would be so stupid.

    Sick of playing central players out wide. Would rather Griezmann. Its an option though if we get injuries..which we will.

    If we end up getting Cesc, then signing Ozil will have been a mistake.

    He's played there for Barca and it'd be no surprise if he plays there for us, rotating with Ozil. But yeah, I'd prefer a real winger out wide as well but can't see Wenger letting Fabregas go without a fight.

    One thing you can say about Cesc, is that he was always a big game player for us. Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge, big CL games, he produced the goods when it mattered mostly.

    Can you say the same about Cazorla and Ozil? Not really.

    Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

    They're both isolated cases though, neither was particularly likely to happen, let alone both. We couldn't not buy Ozil because we though Cesc might come back next season, could we?

    Imo as long as he's coming to the PL we have to buy him, otherwise I'd rather he either stayed at Barca or went somewhere else abroad.

    Our only real big game player really is Walcott, scored in some important CL and league games in the last couple of seasons.

    It was anyway. We only signed him because we ****ed everything else up! Premium trolley dash that was! :lol:

    4-1-4-1, Ramsey at DM, Özil and Fabregas at AM. Win every game 5-4 and see if Walcott can score 50 goals a season. Obviously.

    Having Cesc back + a proper DM would give us a truly frightening midfield. Pls just get a striker, a DM and a RB first Arsene.

    If this desc deal is happening, I hope it's sorted before the world cup and that it doesn't drag on. And we could totally use him. Our players will get injured.

    They've already said they're not selling Cesc this summer. Shouldn't we just let it go

    Bartomeu said nobody will be sold unless they request it. Doesn't mean anything as obviously, some players will definitely leave, and if you compare what he said about Cesc ("we won't sell anybody unless they request it") with what he said about others ("Mascherano/Xavi are indespensable, they're key figures"), it gives you an idea. Still, whatever those Sky "sources" know, highly doubt it comes from the club but perhaps from Cesc himself. Seems like Luis Enrique isn't that keen on him, so perhaps he has decided to leave on his own.

    The reported €30M b/o fee is bs though, it will -from what the Spanish press has said when he was signed- only be ~ €30m for AFC, and only if Barcelona accept offers from other clubs that are higher than the initial transfer fee of €36m first. So if e.g. United come in with a €40m offer that Barcelona accept, AFC can buy Cesc for a lower fee, allegedly €30m. If not, then the fee is up for negotiation. So there's no immediate buy-out clause, at least no source in Spain claims that (or there is one, but it is much closer to a three-digit number). Either way, AFC would get 50% of the profit that Barcelona make from selling him.

    Funnily enough, rumour has it that Cesc bought a house in Manchester last month...

    "Barcelona willing to let Fabregas leave for £30m & his preference is PL return. Arsenal have buy-back option but yet to express any interest"

    He's usually spot on with transfer news.
