Fabregas reveals Barca interest: "I'll only leave Arsenal for Barca"

The Spaniard has ignited speculation that he could be on his way to Barcelona even before the 2010 World Cup in South Africa commences.

Although, Arsene Wenger has being the stumbling block of previous attempts, this according to the media might be the proverbial straw that breaks his resolve.

The Catalan club won't think twice if the opportunity to reclaim what they still believe is rightly theirs is presented to them on a platter.

There have been numerous reports linking the 23-year-old to his boyhood club in the past, but recently some reports in the media believe the probability of a high-profile move involving the skipper was very likely by means of a very possible swap deal.

Yaya Toure's agent hinted of a swap deal that could see Arsenal part with Fabregas in exchange for £25m and Yaya Toure.

Dimitri Seluk believes the possibility of a potential move to the Emirates is high given Arsene Wenger's unhidden admiration for the boy.

Dimitri Seluk told the People: "Yaya is happy at Barcelona and will only leave for a big project at a big club.

"But in England there are sides with great prestige and that could be decisive.
Arsene Wenger knows Yaya, and I'm convinced he could be a success with Arsenal."

Fabregas told Marca: "If I decide to leave Arsenal, it will be to wear the shirt of Barcelona. I don't know when that will happen though. I'm very happy at Arsenal. I'm in no hurry to leave the club.

"I want to make a decision about my future before the start of the World Cup. It's impossible to perform at a tournament like the World Cup if you're not fully focused on the sporting aspects of the game. I don't want to be distracted by transfer talk.

"Barcelona are still playing in the Liga title and I'm still an Arsenal player. It would be a lack of respect to discuss a transfer now. No candidates for the Barcelona presidency has approached me, so I don't feel used.

The reports in the media yesterday were rife with suggestions that Arsene is set to put plans (Everton's Mikel Arteta) in motion in the eventuality that he loses Cesc to Barca's superior bidding strength.

Lets all be patient, at least he won't keep us waiting for long - a couple of weeks I think.
