VIDEO: Is this how Barca negotiated with Arsenal for Fabregas?
Now, upon all this Cesc/Barcelona boredom, you have got to acknowledge one thing we had rarely (or never) seen from Arsenal in the past.
That is their robust attitude in their plans to keep Fabregas.
Fate may or may not see Fabregas end up with the Catalans, but you just have to appreciate how Arsenal have brought the situation down to their control and not letting Barca dictate matters (apart from what happens in the media).
The only reason this transfer saga is yet to move on is because of Arsenal – Arsenal not willing to negotiate the sale of a star player for once. And it is key to remember that at this stage in the past, Anelka, Vieira and Henry had been given up.
So, below is a funny little animation of how Barca have been making their proposal.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EynHZcF6soo]
