Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina believes it will be another important summer for the future of Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas.
Speaking to Spanish radio station Cadena Cope, the 28-year old confessed the midfielder is a very important element in the Arsenal squad and is doing well with the Gunners but did add that the 23-year expressed his intention of leaving one day with Barcelona his preferred destination.
Reina – who believes Real Madrid is not a feasible option for Fabregas – also explained that most likely he will sit down with the club to evaluate all available options including any offers made from other clubs.
Last summer, Barcelona had a €40m offer for the player rejected by Arsenal with chairman Sandro Rosell saying last month that the Spanish giants will not increase their bid during this summer’s transfer window.
On Fabregas, Reina said:
He is an important player for Arsenal. He is ok there. But he also has expressed his intention of eventually leaving, and he has said that he might want to go back to his home, in Barcelona.
I don’t know if he would like to go to Madrid. I guess that he will sit with the staff of Arsenal and he will evaluate the project there, and he will see the offers he has received.
He is a franchise player for Arsenal, and I am sure that he knows this before taking any decision.
