There is a strong rumour doing the rounds of some press agencies that when Manchester City made a recent approach to Arsenal to enquire about Cesc Fabregas they were immediately informed that he was off to Spain this summer. It looks as though the Gunners captain will finally get his wish for a move to his beloved Barcelona.
As for Man City, they have now turned their attentions to Barca’s Iniesta as Fabregas’ arrival at the Camp Nou will surely put someone’s nose out of joint. Barca can’t/won’t play Messi, Xavi, Fabregas AND Iniesta in the same team, surely. City have recent previous of doing business with Barca when they bought Yaya Toure last summer.
Iniesta at 27 is just the type of playmaker that Roman Abramovich loves and I’m sure would get a huge thumbs up from Fernando Torres. Is it beyond all reason that ‘if’ Chelsea were to bring in Mata, the flying Spanish winger to join Torres that Iniesta would also welcome an approach from Chelsea?
Like many English Premiership fans I will be watching this weekend’s Champions league final and rooting for Barca to really turn it on. Some may say that I should be supporting the English club but there is no way on gods earth I could ever bring myself to support Sir Alex Ferguson or his Manchester United team. I really hope they get thumped as I watch the likes of Iniesta and co and just wish one or two of them were wearing a Chelsea shirt.
