Arsene Wenger has revealed that his captain is only days away from being welcomed back at the club.

Cesc Fabregas has been subject to a strong transfer pursuit from FC Barcelona, but despite the player’s indecisiveness, the Gunners have managed to somehow keep the 23-year-old as an Arsenal player.

And Wenger has revealed the World Cup winner will resume duty with Arsenal later this week.

But to those who expected some sort of ‘show’ or another big fuss about Fabregas’ return on Thursday – due to what has happened this summer – Wenger is not having any of that.

“[He returns on] August 5. There is no show. There is football. The only show in football is to play good football in the matches.” Wenger said.

“Cesc does that as well as everybody else. What can I say about that? I cannot master what is written in the newspapers, I can only master our decisions and that is it. Cesc has five years to go and that is it.”

Wenger also revealed that Fabregas, along with fellow World Cup finalist Van Persie, will not make the final pre-season game against Legia Warsaw on Saturday, but the duo are not ruled out of the Liverpool game.
