There are plenty of rumours surrounding players from around the world potentially coming to Arsenal, but none will strike a chord as much as this story involving Cesc Fabregas. Apparently, according to the man himself, he’d consider returning to the Emirates as a coach once his playing days are over – and while that’s all well and good, we’d be curious to see whether or not he’d entertain the idea of something more.
A murky road
Look, we aren’t going to beat around the bush here, it’s awkward that he now plays across London for rivals Chelsea. It’s a move that nobody ever wanted to see, and yet, a lot of Gunners fans don’t harbour that much resentment over it. Whether that’s justified or not can be argued for hours, but we want to look into the real core of this situation: which is why we believe Cesc Fabregas should play out his final days in North London.
The 30-year-old spent a whopping eight years of his life and career with Arsenal, and during that time he achieved some truly wonderful things with the club. They won the FA Cup, reached the Champions League Final, and he was even on the books for The Invincibles season despite not playing a role beyond the youth team. Fabregas bleeds red and white, and while his heart may always belong to Barcelona, there’s a reason why he only spent three years there upon returning.
The ultimate return
Cesc knows, as do we all, that it was with Arsenal where he found the most joy in his career. Hell, he’s even been playing for the Blues longer than he was at the Nou Camp during his second tenure, which should tell you everything that you need to know.
Even if this proposed idea were to take place in a few years time, Fabregas could still be an important member of the squad for Arsenal. Obviously, it wouldn’t be under the guidance of Arsene Wenger, but the manager doesn’t matter in this instance because the efficiency of Fabregas would counteract any negatives that may come before him.
His vision, creativity and timing on the ball are all attributes which are sorely missed in the middle of the park at the Emirates, and we’re strongly behind the idea of him heading back for the final few years of his career.
Should Arsenal try and re-sign Cesc Fabregas?
