Luka Modric, Romelu Lukaku, Samir Nasri, Neymar et cetera, the football world is abuzz with transfer news.
Fabregas, though only 24, is marked as one of the most seasoned players on the squad. A Spanish national team player, World Cup winner, and nominee for Player of the Year in 2008, he remains one of the youngest captains in England.
Having him on the team gives other Arsenal youngsters (Jack Wilshire, Aaron Ramsey) someone to look up to and provide the guidance this young team needs.
‘Arsenal’s Beautiful Game.’
Whenever there’s beautiful football, there’s Arsenal.
Though it hasn’t always gotten them the silverware, short, slick passes and intelligent movement in the midfield has given fans some of the most enjoyable football in the EPL. They’ve had players like Johan Cruyff, Dennis Bergkamp, Ronaldinho, Xavi Hernandez, all masters of this beautiful game.
Cesc Fabregas’ creative play-making in the midfield has definitely given Arsenal one of its most powerful advantages, and to lose that would be a crying shame.
All that ‘Moolah’
From the initial 27 million pounds offered by Barcelona to a rising number—currently at 34 million, Fabregas has reportedly been worth up to an estimated 40 million pounds.
With Arsene Wenger’s scrupulous spending habits, selling Fabregas would put the club at a comfortable spending position, making way for fresher and possibly better talents to fill the team’s current weaknesses.
To be great, consistency is key.
In a young squad like Arsenal, to lose any integral part of the team like Fabregas could possibly rework its team dynamics, toppling their already inconsistent form, and possibly setting Arsenal back for yet another trophy-less drought.
Fabregas has been experiencing a slump this last season due to injuries and a dwindling form. The desire to win has to come first. Desire which, unfortunately, the captain seems to lack.
If Fabregas does stay, perhaps it would be good to either revive the drive toward actually winning, or do away with what’s stopping them.
