While Cesc Fabregas may be enjoying his current role as a pundit for the BBC, he won’t be doing that for long. The 31-year-old, who is a former World Cup winner, has always been someone to keep your eye on as you just never know when he’s going to provide us with that next moment of magic. Now, however, fans are convinced that he’s been dropping hints regarding a potential return to the Emirates with Arsenal.
The Spaniard broke Gunners fans’ hearts back in 2011 when, after eight years with the club, he left to return to boyhood club Barcelona. The midfielder spent three years at the Nou Camp before moving on once again, this time, to Stamford Bridge. The funny thing about this is that Arsenal fans were perfectly willing to accept the move to Spain, and yet when it came to a move over to rivals Chelsea, they went utterly ballistic.
But you know what they say, time heals all wounds – and you only have to take one look at LeBron James’ return to the Cleveland Cavaliers as an example of that. Arsenal fans aren’t going to care all too much about Cesc’s time with Chelsea so long as he can provide the goods upon returning, and although he isn’t the same player he used to be, he could be a great source off the bench if Arsenal are in need of something fresh in the middle of the park.
We all know that he’s a smart guy and we know that he has the ability to create something out of nothing, otherwise why would he have spent so much time in the first team with the Blues? Perhaps the true fairytale ending to Cesc’s career would be for him to come back home to the Emirates for a few years before eventually riding off into the sunset – hopefully with one more Premier League title under his belt.
For now, Fabregas will be focusing on enjoying his summer, and maybe he’ll even manage to have one more season with Chelsea, but it feels like the right way to cap off his time in English football would be moving back to Arsenal. The fans would grow to accept it, the players would appreciate having someone of his experience in the team, and we think it’d do him the world of good.
Will Cesc Fabregas ever play for Arsenal again?
