Remember this from Mourinho "I dont think it'll be a big summer, couple of clinical signings, but quiet otherwise" or words to those effect.

Lampard, Cole, Eto'o, Luiz gone already. He's such a blagger in the transfer windows lol

Well if both SkyNigeria and Barca Israel are running with it then it's only a matter of time.

Let's do a Wenger and bid £1 over 33m so they can get 50p for us acquiring their 'legend'.

As you can tell from my OP i have never been his biggest fan but I couldn't stand Cole when he was at Arsenal (and given he grew up as a gooner i doubt his feelings for Chelsea were particularly ple

Who? Pogba and Vidal are ridiculous money, Koke is around 60 million euros. Fabregas is homegrown, can play the deeper role, knows the Premier League and by all accounts should be in his prime.

Pogba is homegrown too. I would rather him but we could definitely afford to pay more. Whatever, I don't make the decisions... If it were me Cesc wouldn't be high on my want list.

Fabregas was often the weak link in Barça's team this year. Not really my first pick for CM.

Toure, Song, Sanchez, Cesc, Ibra,...they all 'underperform' in barca because they play specific system...they simply dont suit that.

Anywhere else, they would/were/are be probably key players of their teams...

I realy wouldnt judge Cesc on Barca form, there everything spins around Messi and Xavi, Iniesta were successull enough because they played with Messi whole career. I doubt any CM will fit Barca if they keep tiki taka and always play on Messi. Koke will be same story if they keep that system IMO.

Fabregas was amazing in Arsenal, realy best CM of league together with Lamps for few years, if he can replicate that form, Im sure he will succeed here.

Tancredi just entered the game. That's how you know this isn't going to happen

Exactly. Each time a big name transfer drags for so long like cavani, falcao, aguero, hulk it most likely doesn't happen.

but

I couldn't stand Cole when he was at Arsenal (and given he grew up as a gooner i doubt his feelings for Chelsea were particularly pleasant) now we love him and the feelings mutual.

I couldn't stand Rafa, now i respect him and the job he done here under difficult circumstances, and i think all bar the stubborn few feel the same.

Couldn't stand Eto'o as a teenager during the Chelsea vs Barca constant clashes, now i love him.

If Cesc comes i will put all my previous ill feelings to one side and hope he brings a lot off wins and trophies to the table, if he does then all is forgiven.

This is it. :clap:

he can play the deeper role??? he was average in the 3 man barca mid. his best position was behind the striker or the false 9. think about playing in a 2 man pivot and doing the dirty work.

It's how he played at Arsenal for most of his career I believe? Only in the last couple of seasons he switched to being further forward.

He used to play as a deeper CM for Arsenal where he provided bucket loads of assists.

He wouldn't play in the deeper role to do the dirty work either. That's what Matic is for. He'd be the playmaker there.

Couldn't said it better myself, I share the exact same feelings with you.

Hated Cole, Eto'o to guts before they joined us, now I'm in love. Football is really a funny little game. I admit I hate Fabregas to the highest level but if he puts on a Chelsea kit and perform his heart out then welcome Cesc.

do even u believe that our second pivot player wont have to do the dirty work!!! its like saying modric does not do the dirty work, only alonso does that in RM.

this is not arsenal. jose will make sure of that!!! from him the defense of the team has always come first. a solid system is the basic ground work of his successes. the cunt wont be the "playmaker" in the team. heck, even oscar is not the play maker and does a lot of dirtywork.

Now that Lampard is official, this makes the most sense to me.

People mentioned of Pogba, Vidal and such seems a bit far fetched. There's the thing about the club wanting to sell and the player wanting to leave.

In this case Barcelona does want to get rid of Fabregas, and the player does want to go. The only stumbling block is Arsenal. Despite all the talk that Arsenal is not interested, we don't know.

We can just wait and see what they have to say about this deal, since they have first refusal.

If we can get past all that, I say for 30 million is a good deal. I'm not sure how much Barcelona paid for him, but his experience and his age seems like a reasonable fee. And he wouldn't have to adjust to the PL since he's well accustomed to it.

For what it's worth i just heard on Sky Sports News that reports of a deal with Fabregas are not true.

Make of that what you will.
