Now Roman wants Cesc

Roman Abrahimovich plans to make a £50million summer swoop for Cesc Fabregas.
Chelsea's billionaire owner will try to hijack any Barcelona bid to land the Arsenal skipper.

Capturing Fabregas would be an even more astonishing Blues coup than the recent £50m British record signing of Fernando Torres from Liverpool.

Chelsea see the Spaniard as the ideal partner for Frank Lampard in the side's engine room.

This is interesting. 50 million for him must sound tempting for Arsenal. Even if this doesn't work for Roman, the fact that he offered so much means that Barcelona will have a harder time trying to match this amount of money. So Cesc may stay at least until the final year in his contract with Arsenal.

Yeah I guess you're right. Fabregas would never want to go to Chelsea, well thats what he says. So might end up staying. But that will not necessarily be a good thing I think.

I'd have to agree that I doubt Fabregas would want to go to Chelsea but I wonder if Arsenal would sell him to another club just to spite Barcelona.

I don't think so. I think they'll use this opportunity to tell him that if you want to go then we will sell you to the highest bidder. And Barca are unlikely to match the 50 mil bid, so they might hang on to him for another season.
