Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has recently said a deal to re-sign Cesc Fabregas this summer was as clean and simple as supporters have suggested, hinting that there were parts of the deal he cannot reveal just yet, reports Sky Sports.
Arsenal face Chelsea this weekend, which sees Blues midfielder Cesc Fabregas coming up against his former side. He left Arsenal in 2011 to join Barcelona, and spent three years back at the Nou Camp before Chelsea came in for him last summer. The Spanish playmaker was a fans’ favourite in his time for the Gunners, and would always talk up his love for the club, even when he had left to return to his native country.
So when supporters learned of his availability last summer, they wanted Fabregas back at the Emirates stadium. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger didn’t exercise the buy-back option for the midfielder, which caused fans to question why, especially as he’s now on course to win the Premier League title with Chelsea, but the Gunners boss revealed there was more to the deal than meets the eye, and more than he’s at liberty to discuss.
Wenger was quoted as saying: “I cannot speak to you about that (reasons) now because that will not help us to win the game on Sunday. We will have to discuss that one day, with all the terms. It is not as clean as that.”
