Fabregas’ agent is reported to have said that "If we received an offer from Barcelona, clearly we would listen to it. It is the club which taught Cesc everything and it would be a compliment if that happened."
Agents are no fools and they know that what they say will be picked up, span round by the press and sensationalized.
Do not believe the rubbish that the newspapers or Fabregas’ agent are spouting out about welcoming a possible interest from Barcelona. There must be other reasons that Cesc’s agent has chosen to speak out.
This is because it is obvious that there are no real reasons that would make Cesc want away from the Emirates.
Usually a player answers the sirens (or on many occasions his agent creates them for him) from aspiring new employers when he is unhappy about any of the following:
- he is not getting a game or enough games; the reason Edu left Arsenal and the reason why Lehman will go
- he wants more cash (and related recognition that comes with it); the Cashley Cole syndrome
- his family (usually wife/partner) or himself is unhappy and wants a move to another town or country
- the Thiery Henry/Patrick Vieira syndrome; he is the star of the team and considers that with the present personnel the team will not win anything
Now which of the above would fit Fabregas’ case if any?
He is the star in a team that is sitting on top of the League, unbeaten and playing what everyone in the world admits beautiful football.
These are the most exciting times to be an Arsenal player.
He signed an eight-year contract extension last season after all.
And insisted only last month he had no regrets about shunning a potential move to the Bernabeu to remain with the Gunners.
What is sure is that the latest news are being instigated by his agent and not himself.
Which leaves us with only one explanation. More money.
