Fabregas will come to Barcelona

The football season is coming to an end, and that means only one thing: The World Cup. Well actually this year it means two things: The World Cup and the outbreak of silly season in transfer market speculation. Over the last couple of years we’ve had the long-winded sagas of Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid and Gareth Barry to Liverpool, with one move left in tatters as a result. But with the transfer market depressed outside of the Madrid monsters and Manchester City, what will fit the bill?

Step forward Lionel Messi, who has answered Sports editors’ prayers by saying that Cesc Fabregas will return to Barcelona... at some point in the future. Stay classy, Lionel.

‘Cesc has a place for Arsenal in his heart but he has Barcelona in his blood,’ said Messi. ‘He will want to win the biggest prizes in football and I expect him to do that at Barcelona. I don't exactly know when that will be, but I expect him to be my Barcelona team-mate again at some point. I am sure that Arsene Wenger and Cesc have a father-son relationship and I know that he has a very special relationship with the Arsenal fans.

‘When you grow up at a club, it is more than just a club. The coaches, the players, the people in the club will be like family. But Barcelona is his city and it is the club of him and his family. There are only a few players in the world who can improve this squad we have but Cesc is one of them.’
