Spain International and Arsenal legend Cesc Fabregas returns to London to join the Gunners rivals Chelsea. Arsene Wegner passed up the opportunity to sign his one time captain allowing Chelsea to pounce!
Has Wenger boobed? The last time Cesc ‘strutted his stuff’ in the Premiership he was arguably the leagues best midfielder. Wenger clearly has plans and the signing of Alexis from Barcelona indicates that he had his reasons for passing up Fabregas.
In any event the net winners are EPL fans who will see the Spanish Maestro competing once again in England top league.
