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

not going to get carried away, been here far too many times.

Falcao, Cavani....Costa will be announced right after the Champions League final, well still waiting

only personal terms agreed to so far if Mundo Deportivo is correct, no one has specified us agreeing a fee with Barca as of yet. all say 36m Euros is what is required by Farca, we have to hope Arse dont activate it last minute. United have also cash to drop and Fab has his best pal RVP there to convince him and be on the good side of Arse fans.

need to close this asap before the WC along with costa

My sources tell me that she isn't a source at all and she's in fact my mother, I've been told exclusively 'Stop pestering me about Fabregas news, I don't even like football. More to follow'.

Source?

Being pessimistic here, but I am waiting for the inevtiable denial from cesc or his agent... or.... arsenal or city/utd to come in

I won't be shocked, especially if this saga lasts more than a week.

Hulk, cavani, aguero and falcao rumors looked set and done and we know how that turned out.

Even though I have no complains with him joining us, there is something wrong with that picture. Fabregas in BLUE!!!! Something aint right.

Well, seems this is heading in a direction I didn't expect. I said last night he isn't the box to box midfielder of the likes of Ramires or Paul Pogba but what Cesc would offer would be a quickness of mind and not speed across the floor. He's never been quick, nor has he ever been a grass blade covering machine that is blowing out of his arse after 60 minutes, he's a clever minded footballer that offers a touch of finesse that can deliver or unlock a tight defense with a clinical pass or a deft 1-2 into space.

What we will be getting is a player that knows this league inside out and knows exactly what it takes to succeed here but also a bonus for me is the lack of time it will take him to adapt to his role at Chelsea. The price banded around is around the 30M mark, that's not a lot considering he's 27, has a dearth of talent, and is arguably in his prime years as a footballer. Some might say his tackling is an issue, well I would agree, he isn't the best, but look what he would potentially have next to him.....the best litter picker in the world in Matic. Matic will be the one who undertakes the donkey work in that role, Cesc would potentially just be the dot on the 'i' but with a far more prominent role in the attacking third of the field supporting Willian/Oscar/Hazard/Costa (If purchased)

All of this is hypothetical of course because he has not yet signed, but the news reports are sounding more and more likely that we are trying hard to secure his signature. Me personally I am not a fan of Fabregas the person and how he came across at Arsenal, but then again I was the same with Ashley Cole, hey we are football fans, we put things aside because the love for our club. The big picture here is he ticks the boxes, the right boxes, the boxes we need. I don't think we could ever replace Frank, his goals and his off the field persona for this club but I think a move for Cesc makes a massive amount of sense in that he can contribute offensively and chip in with important goals, he has a lot of pluses over head and negatives I am trying hard to find.

Lets wait and see how this pans out, but personally we could make worse transfers like Paulinho. Our kitty is stacked right now and we have freed up a lot in wages with sales of Luiz, Lampard leaving and possibly Cole too, setting the stall out this summer and getting the right players is key. This is probably the most important window for many years because of the positions we need to strengthen. We all know a striker is paramount, then LB and this position we are speaking of now, it just has to be nailed by the club and I am sure they will get it right.

CAREFREE!!

Right.

Striker, LB and Cm are must.

Everyone just jumping on reports from Spain hoping to be right, 95% of the time wrong.

What about the reports from the Guardian and the Telegraph?

It hasn't just been Spain.
