Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola claims Arsenal have agreed to negotiate the sale of Cesc Fabregas to the European champions.
Speaking at a press conference today, Guardiola was quoted as saying on the Barcelona website: “We were interested last year, but Arsenal did not put him on the market. This year they’ve agreed to negotiate and we will try to reach an agreement.”
He added: “You all know about Barça’s interest in Cesc. There is money set aside for this player and until the last day we will try to bring in Cesc because he will make the squad better. I hope that something can be sorted. Until 31 August there is time, but at times things don’t always work out.”
