He has gone his seperate ways from his agent, who is believed to be very pro-Real Madrid and very anti-Barcelona. The agent has the total trust of Arsene Wenger and has Almunia and Merida on his books.
The spilt has caused huge excitement in Barcelona as they now feel the time is right to make a move. My advice to Barca; DO ONE!
Cesc has stated time and time again that he is happy at Arsenal and in particular working with Arsene Wenger. He is intelligent enough to know that leaving Arsenal would a huge mistake. As plenty of ex-Gunners can vouch for.
The grass is not always greener on the other side!
Cesc realises that leaving the club at stage in his career could damage it and he knows that he owes Arsenal and in particular Wenger his loyalty. Not forgetting us Gooners! We love him, and he has stated in the past, several times, how much he loves and adores us.
Most of this could be paper talk. So dont read into it too much.
I accept that it inevitable that Cesc will go back to Spain one day. But not anytime soon. So Barca, JOG ON! Cesc is going no where.
Keep it Goonerish......,
