Arsenal To Demand €72 Million For Cesc Fabregas Transfer To Barcelona - Report

As reported by Marca, Premier League side Arsenal have requested that Barcelona pay at least €72 million should the Catalan giants wish to acquire former Barca youth product and current Gunners captain Cesc Fabregas.

The price tag comes on the heels of a €35m formal offer by the Blaugrana last week that was rejected by the London side. Instead, the Gunners have more than doubled the asking price, making Barca president Joan Laporta's hope of signing the young midfielder before the Catalan club's elections on June 13 a difficult task to accomplish.

The story is too old to be commented.

Arsenal have every right to raise that cause he is still on contract for 4-5yrs maybe in a years time it will be better but every top class player goes out with that kind of price next their face !

I hope he is a gooner for a bit longer
