Ever since reports emerged claiming that Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will look to off-load Cesc Fabregas this summer, Arsenal fans have to taken to social media to urge the Gunners’ manager Arsene Wenger to re-sign the club’s former skipper as the North London side prepare to go into their first season without Champions League football under Wenger.
Now there can be no denying that Fabregas would be a great signing for Arsenal. Despite being out of favour at Stamford Bridge last season, the Spaniard looked good in the few games he did manage to feature in, creating plenty of chances. Still at 29 years of age, the former Arsenal midfielder does seem to have a good few years ahead of him as well.
But unfortunately, I just do not see this one happening. The first reason I would state would be the severed ties he has with the club and with Wenger after controversially leaving for Barcelona, a time in which he was so desperate to leave that he paid a bit of the transfer fees from his own pocket. In addition, the player is unlikely to be willing to play in the Europa League with Arsenal, especially considering that he does not have too much time at the highest level.
Finally, and most significantly, Fabregas has two years left to run on his contract with Chelsea and the Blues will simply not sell to Arsenal. So while I would absolutely love to have him back, the reality of the situation is that it is simply not possible.
