Barcelona to Make an Improved Offer for Cesc Fabregas before World Cup Begins

With Arsenal showing no sign of interest to sell their most prized asset Cesc Fabregas, Barcelona is preparing an improved bid for the midfielder in an attempt to complete the deal. However, Arsenal may want to wait until the World Cup Football 2010 completes.

Barcelona has been tracking the Gunners captain over the last couple of seasons, but this time they are more desperate than anytime before to get back their former student. Arsene Wenger signed a 16-year-old Fabregas in 2003 from Barcelona’s youth side.

Barcelona’s outgoing president Joan Laporta could be in a hurry to complete the deal before the World Cup kicks off on 11 June in South Africa. Laporta would be replaced by a new president after next Sunday’s election. So, he would like to have the credit of signing Fabregas to his name while leaving the hot seat for his successor.

So, reports out in the media suggest Laporta would give it a final shot in his bid to sign the 23-year-old midfielder before his farewell.

Barcelona already has a £29million bid rejected by the North London club. Arsenal did not even show any interest for negotiating a deal, but rumors have it in the media that they are now asking a price in the range of £60 million.

On the other hand, Barcelona reportedly wants to complete the signing for no more than £45 million. Cesc Fabregas, however, has not expressed anything regarding Arsenal’s rejection and lack of interest to negotiate a deal.

Rather, the Spanish star wants to remain focused on Spain’s World Cup campaign and he would not let anything distract his World Cup mission.
