Barca will fight until the end for Fabregas

BARCELONA manager Pep Guardiola is willing to wait until the dying embers of the transfer window to force through the transfer of Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has publically expressed a desire to retain the Spaniard’s services but his counterpart at Barcelona revealed the north London club’s resistance is lessening and is hopeful Fabregas will finally rejoin the club he left as a trainee this summer, even if it means holding out until the 31 August deadline.

“Arsenal have agreed to negotiate and we will try to reach an agreement,” he said.

“There is money set aside and until the last day we will try to bring in Cesc.

“I hope that something can be sorted. Until August 31 there is time, but at times things don’t always work out.”
