Le Grove HQ took a phone call late last night from a source very close to the Fabregas camp. Apparently, long term friend of Cesc; Lionel Messi, is growing increasingly tired of Barcelona’s pathetic attempts to unsettle Cesc.
‘Lionel hates the way Barca do business, he thinks they should show more class in the transfer market, so he’s been putting the feelers out for a new club. Cesc, understands his good friends frustrations. He’s been telling him about how great Arsenal football club is on the phone almost daily for the last few months, he’s pretty confident if Arsenal offer the right deal, Messi could be lining up in the red and white of Arsenal next year.’
Despite some quite dazzling displays this season, all is not well within the confines of the Barca camp,
‘Lionel cuts a lonely figure in the Barca dressing room. Many of the senior squad have grown frustrated with his stellar performances and insistence on playing like he is the best footballer in the world. He walks around the Nou Camp like he is Maradona… people are scared to even look him in the eye at the moment.’
The story seems to carry even more weight when you consider Barcelona’s interest in £35million Togo international, Emmanuel Adebayor. Our source, also a close friend of Barca President Laporta said,
‘Joan was pretty disappointed he failed to land Adebayor last summer, this year he is determined to get his man. If that involves sacrificing a player who doesn’t enjoy the Barca way with the media… then so be it.’
A cash plus Messi deal is being mooted and providing Adebayor’s wage demands can be met, Lionel could be on his way out as early as June.
