There hasn't been many peeps out from the Camp Nou regarding Cesc Fabregas lately but I'm sure there will be over the summer.
I have heard and seen little snippets. Apparently after the Champions League final Carles Puyol said: "I'm convinced Cesc will play with us soon."
It does make me wonder though. Are FC Barcelona really, and I mean really, desperate to get our captain like they say?
By all accounts last summer the bastards put in a bid that wouldn't even have bought Andy Carroll. Bit of a piss-take don't you think? Was it a sick joke?
For all the 'Barcelona DNA' and 'We love Cesc' bollocks Barcelona are, for the second summer in succession, set to announce a major big-money signing before even making a bid for Fabregas.
Last year David Villa signed for the Catalans and this time it is believed that Giuseppe Rossi is set to join the club.
So for the second year running Cesc Fabregas could find himself the 'second-choice' transfer target. Hmmmmm, they really want him don't they?
All Barcelona will do this summer is butter Cesc up and flirt with him, trying to turn his head and wanting him to put in a transfer request.
He isn't their number one target and surely the 'supposed' capture of Rossi should confirm this to him.
Of course on the other hand it shows Barca's ambition by trying to get both players but the truth is they can't afford both at their market price.
Rossi will cost a fortune and so will Cesc but I honestly feel for a second summer running FC Barcelona will leave our skipper hung out to dry.
They will toy with him but will not put in a 'proper' bid. Cesc needs to realise that Barca don't want him as much as they say and knuckle down.
Keep It Goonerish.........
