All Arsenal fans were understandably upset when Arsene Wenger gave Cesc Fabregas his wish to return to Barcelona a couple of summers ago, but at least we all understood the reasons for his departure and would probably welcome our old captain back with open arms.
Well today Wenger has told of his belief that he could see Fabregas returning to the Emirates in the future, although he doesn’t think it will be in the next couple of years. He said: “I’m not convinced that he won’t come back here one day,”
“He is really an Arsenal man. He loves Arsenal and watches every game of Arsenal.
“But of course Barcelona was his home town where he grew up and you have to accept that will come into it, especially with them having the best team in the world. [Fabregas would not come back] in the next two, three years, certainly not, because he is linked with Barcelona. But maybe later.”
Perhaps, like Thierry Henry he could make a hero’s return once he has made his millions with Barcelona, and gets a bit long in the tooth to make the Catalan’s first team, but would Arsenal fans be happy to accept him once his career is practically over?
