It’s been a frustrating week for some Arsenal fans as the saga surrounding the future of the club’s former captain Cesc Fabregas has rolled on.
Fabregas returned to Barcelona as somewhat of a saviour, hailed as the player who would prevent the club from suffering when Xavi decided to hang up his boots and move into the Barcelona history books.
However, things haven’t exactly panned out as he would have been hoping over the last two seasons as he’s struggled to adapt back to life in Spain.
Routinely played out of position, Fabregas has been used all over the Barcelona midfield and even up front as a false number nine.
The Spaniard looks set to leave Barcelona this summer, it’s just a case of which side he might join with several reports suggesting Arsene Wenger isn’t interested in bringing the player back to the Emirates.
He doesn’t have to. Arsenal already have two world class number tens in their squad in the form of German Mesut Ozil and Fabregas’ fellow Spaniard Santi Cazorla.
However, the bitter pill to swallow is that Jose Mourinho is reportedly the favourite to do a deal for Fabregas when some sources are suggesting he doesn’t rate the player ahead of Atletico Madrid’s Koke or Juventus’ Paul Pogba.
It could be extremely difficult for Arsenal to take should Fabregas become a Chelsea player, as Wenger will forever be faced with the question of ‘Why didn’t you bring him home?’ if he turned out to be a success in West London.
Plenty of Gunners have questioned the Chelsea links on social media site Twitter and some haven’t been too positive about the possibility of his Stamford Bridge move.
Here are some of the best comments from Arsenal fans on the Fabregas to Chelsea rumours.
This is all quite stressful and painful. If we're not going for Cesc I want Arsene to make a statement, tell us why. A mercy killing. #Afc— WeSignedMesutÖzil (@YouSoldBale) June 5, 2014

Wenger handed United the title by giving them RVP and no by letting Cesc Go to Chelsea he is doing the same thing again #afc— Arran Farrell (@ArranAFCSTL) June 4, 2014
How can Wenger reject Cesc if he KNOWS that he could end up going to Chelsea. This is just terrible.— Abhinav (@_AK93) June 5, 2014
Will be fuming with Wenger if he lets Cesc go to Chelsea- surely he knows that's a Massssive mistake— Kerr Hallyburton (@KerrHally14) June 4, 2014
