Fabregas begs Wenger to join Barcelona

Cesc Fabregas has made an emotional plea to Arsene Wenger to let him join Barcelona.

The Spain midfielder, 24, has made it plain he wants to quit Arsenal and is desperate for Wenger not to block his dream move back to the Nou Camp.

Fabregas, who talked to Wenger this week, believes they had an understanding that the manager would not stand in his way this summer after refusing to sell him last year.

Barcelona have sent a delegation, led by vice-president Josep Maria Bartomeu, to London to try to negotiate a deal within the next 48 hours and "avoid any further tensions."

Barcelona have sent a delegation, led by vice-president Josep Maria Bartomeu, to London to try to negotiate a deal within the next 48 hours and "avoid any further tensions."

However, Fabregas is trying to force his way out by leaving Wenger in no doubt that he wants to return to his boyhood heroes.

It leaves Arsenal in a difficult position.

Wenger is sympathetic towards Fabregas but Arsenal are demanding £40m for him - and Barca's offers have fallen well short so far.

Fabregas is hoping Barcelona make an improved offer, but it is believed that president Sandro Rosell is reluctant to meet Arsenal's asking price.

Meanwhile, Wenger is left to deal with an unhappy player.

Fabregas, who missed the club’s Far East tour with a hamstring problem, will now not be involved in Saturday’s friendly against Cologne.

The Spaniard has been doing fitness work with Sol Campbell - back at Arsenal to try to get himself in shape to find another club - while the deal is haggled over.

Wenger has been desperate for Fabregas to stay but has made a habit in the past of not keeping unhappy players and will now be hoping Barca are ready to do a deal.

Talks are likely to intensify today to try to finally solve the long-running transfer saga.
