From being a massive favourite among Arsenal fans, even when he left the Emirates to return to his boyhood club Barcelona back in 2011, the Spain international midfield star Cesc Fabregas became persona non grata with Gooners after he came back to the Premier League two years ago to join up with Arsene Wenger’s old nemesis Jose Mourinho.
At the time a lot of us wanted Arsene Wenger to activate our option to bring the former Arsenal captain back to north London but we did seem to be already well stocked in that area of the pitch. Is the same thing still true though, because a report in The Mirror suggests that Cesc’s time at Stamford Bridge could be coming to an end and if this is true then would we want Wenger to offer him a return?
The gist of the report is that the new Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is looking at the possible transfer of four players who occupy the same sort of position as Fabregas. But it also suggests that the new Man United boss Jose Mourinho is keeping tabs on the situation and is ready to try to sign him again.
I know that Wenger has already brought in Granit Xhaka and there is a feeling that he is not exactly close to his former star anymore, but we did lose two players in Flamini and Arteta this summer and with the injury history of Jack Wilshere a constant concern, is it time for the boss to at least try to reunite Fabregas and Arsenal?
