ARSENAL READY TO RE-SIGN CESC FABREGAS FOR £25 MILLION
English premier league side Arsenal are manoeuvring themselves into a position to bring Cesc Fabregas back to north London.
Fabregas is currently on his summer holidays following Spain's Confederations Cup campaign and is pondering his future after a frustrating season at Barcelona.
Although the former gunners skipper maintains he wants to stay at the Nou Camp publicly, doubts over how he fits into manager Tito Vilanova's plans after being regularly overlooked for big games last season has left him in two minds.
And the Gunners are poised to strike should the midfielder decide his future lies elsewhere with the Emirates Stadium club being kept updated on developments regarding the 26-year-old's future as the summer progresses.
A deal to re-sign Fabregas will be relatively straightforward to conclude. As part of the deal that took Fabregas back to Spain, Arsenal secured a £25million first-option clause as part of the transfer.
Therefore if Barcelona decide to sell Fabregas, Arsenal would have first refusal on the midfielder at a fixed price of £25million.
