Is Cesc set to go?

Arsenal defender Bacary Sagna has admitted that club captain Cesc Fabregas is desperate to leave the Emirates Stadium this year in order to join his boyhood side Barcelona.

The Spaniard has once again been linked with a return to the side where he grew up before signing for the Gunners as a 16-year-old in 2003.

Speculation has been rife over the last few summers that Fabregas was set to return to the Nou Camp but Arsenal have always managed to hold on to their man but Sagna believes this could finally be the summer the midfield maestro moves on. Betfair BlackBerry users won't be surprised by this.

Fabregas was part of Spain's World Cup winning squad alongside the likes of Barca's Xavi, Andreas Iniesta and Gerard Pique who have all openly expressed their desire to be joined at club level by the Arsenal skipper and Sagna has admitted that the playmaker has his mind made up.

"I can say it's true that Cesc wants to go to Barca," Sagna told France's RMC radio station.

"Fabregas wants to return to his country of birth, to his city, where his family are; he wants to play for one of the best teams in the world, Barcelona, and that's understandable".

Another possible exit from the Emirates is Samir Nasri who has rumoured to have attracted the interest of rivals Manchester United. Most people who have made a Betfair iPad download will have heard the rumours.

Nasri is about to enter the final year of his contract and due to the Gunner's lack of silverware is rumoured to be looking to move as he looks to win some trophies. However, Sagna believes his compatriot happy at the club but is unsure whether or not he will stay at the Emirates.

"Samir is happy at Arsenal, but I don't know what the best thing is for his career," he said.
