Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has been reported to have told Barcelona that his is prepared to give up bonuses in his contract, totalling £4 million, in order to help to secure his move back to the Spanish giants.
The news comes after Arsenal and Barcelona were revealed to have met in order to hammer out a deal for the Spanish international but the negotiations failed after Arsenal rejected the increased £35 million offer made by the European and domestic champions.
It is widely reported that the club are looking keep hold of their captain but with consistent signs showing that Fabregas has set his mind on leaving the Emirates this summer, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has been forced to leave the player out of his pre-season preparations in order to get the full value that he can from one of the club’s prized assets.
The Barcelona/Fabregas saga is contineously becoming one of the longest football transfer pursuits in football history and after 12 months of trying to get their target, Barcelona continue to remain confident that they will be able to get their man this summer but stand firm on their decision not to pay the full £40 million asking price.
The Spanish internationals happiness at the North London club is now not in doubt, the player telling team mates and family that he wanted to seal the move back to the Primera Liga, but with Barcelona themselves being the main attraction to the move away from Arsenal, other clubs have failed to even approach with their interest.
Central midfielder Fabregas have also been reported to have told Arsenal that he is willing to pay the Premier League club to allow him to leave, thoughts showing that the player would be willing to pay £4 million in order to bump the Barcelona offer closer to the £40 million asking price on his head.
The offer from the Arsenal captain is based on the loyalty bonuses that the player would be entitled to should he leave the club with the four remaining years still on his contract, money that the player says he is happy to waive in order to help the move go through before the start of the Premier League season.
Arsenal boss Wenger is determined to make the player’s exit as hard as possible in order to try to postpone the star’s exit from the club until the winter, saying that the situation in relation to the sale of Fabregas was “not sorted” and that he didn’t “want to talk about it anymore”.
The new Premier League campaign is set to get underway next week and Wenger has already warned the Spanish giants that should they not meet the asking price of the player before then, they can forget about signing their target this summer.
