if arsenal manage to keep all their players the team is going to be pretty dam good, on paper anyway. fabregas, nasri, gervinho, mata, van persie and wilshere all good to watch but they still need atleast 2 defenders left and centre.

Better defenders, yes, but honestly, I think that's only 30% of the problem. We need to improve our defensive tactics and defensive coaching if we're gonna make meaningful improvements to our defence.

Why are Arsenal even buying Mata? No doubt he is a great player but unless they sell Nasri or Arshavin, they will have far too many wingers.

Mata is also a very good central midfielder. The article is implying that Mata will replace Cesc.

Seriously tho, Barca really are a bunch of pricks - just f*****g pay up!

sry but fabregas is overpriced and we have thiago so cesc isn't a must buy...

35m is overpriced? In terms of the economy it is but if Aguero is worth more than 40m than Fabregas is certainly worth more than 35m. World class playmakers are extremely rare and in my opinion, should be as valuable as the goalscorers out there. Fabregas is still young and with his style of play easily has 10 years left in him and not only that, he has vastly more experience than most people his age.

Barcelona are just trying to be stingy and force Arsenal into selling him at a price that doesn't reflect his true value. They've tried every dirty little trick in the book to get what they want and I think it's admirable that Arsenal are holding out and ultimately if Fabregas doesn't get his move, Barcelona should be the only ones to blame.
