    Fabregas could have said by now he wants to stay. The fact the barca coach can't say for certain he's staying tells me he's on his way to united.

    The decision is up to Cesc, according to their new manager. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/23559646
    Well, that sounds far more positive than 'he's going nowhere'. I don't think he's even commented on it yet. If there was absolutely no chance, he would come out and say he's staying.

    I have a little hope.

    :facepalm2: He started 30 league games last season. You guys are looking for something that isnt there.

    Played 700 minutes less than Carrick did in the league.

    A lot of the minutes came from playing his false 9 role anyway.Neymar = 1 less attacking spot = 1 less spot Fabregas can occupy to get enough minutes.

    Subbed off during alot, a good half, of his starts anyway.

    Notoriously not played or subbed off during many important games.

    Looking for something that isnt there? Not at all, its there for everyone to see.

    One of whom isn't getting younger and playing time will only increase.

    Does the management at Barcelona even see Cesc as Xavi's heir? When they first brought him in, I thought it was obvious, but I feel less sure about it all the time.

    This has started again. I thought the original theory was that Cesc would only leave Barca if Barca wanted him to leave........

    I don't see anyone right now as Xavi's heir, right now I'm thinking Iniesta as he ages a bit maybe he can drop back and give Cesc the more attacking role but right now as I said no one in the squad I can see apart from Busquets but hes not going to be moved any time soon so.

    Yeah tbh I see Busquets taking up a lot of Xavi's roles in midfield with another DM coming in, Iniesta as AM. Don't think Iniesta would be so effective in that deeper role.

    Yeah man both Iniesta and Fabregas I don't think have that temperament and they like being a little risky much like Thiago did.

    I don't think we will get another DM. What I was hoping for was a double pivot midfield of Song and Busquets with Fabregas as CAM and then Neymar and Iniesta Wingers.

    Yeah, BBC and anyone that actually think there's something in this are basically clutching on straws.

    Barca and Cesc are playing a game up keepy uppy between them and whoever drops the ball, is the one who decides the future of the player!

    I would say, atm, that there is a slight doubt on his future - it never seems to have been collectively unequivocal from Barcelona that he's staying (due to the number of characters speaking out or not speaking about) so there might be the tiniest hope but I only forsee that he'll stay. His return hasn't been as good as he probably hoped and with Pep going, Tito's health issues, now Martino - it's probably been unsettling for him and that's where an agent of his might have said to us that he'd go if Barca let him etc.

    Apparently, Rooney's playing a behind closed doors match tonight? In preparation for the match in Sweden? He's apparently gaging crowd reaction atm which probably will be positive if he plays in Sweden but if he plays at Rio's testiomonial, it'd probably be mixed like it was at the trophy receiving of the PL after the Swansea match.

    And. Fine its hard to fit fabregas. but it makes no sense for barca to sell a midfielder like him to you guys when xavi's declining/can't play every game.

    I don't get these comments though, it sounds like either
    1.fabregas isn't wanted
    2.they have a midfielder in mind that's available to replace him
    3. they're entertaining united because they can.

    That's if there's no mistranslation. But I think that if they wanted rid of fabregas, they already have his replacement lined up...

    But surely if he was interested in the money then he would have stayed at Arsenal since its been reported that he took a pay cut to join Barcelona.
