Barcelona talk to Cesc Fabregas’ family

Over the past month or so we have witnessed one of the most in your face campaigns of tapping up from Barcelona. Its public, against the law and disgraceful.

It is widely reported in the Spanish press (Marca, El Mundo, that yesterday there was a lengthy conversation between Cesc’s family (believed to be his mother and sisters) and the Barcelona president Sandro Rosell. Now, I’m not going to make any accusations that there was anything untoward going on but its not the sort of thing you want to see as an Arsenal fan.

Theres no point being patronising about how important family is to Cesc, of course it is going to be important – but seeing Barcelona getting so up close and personal with Cesc and his family is rather disconcerting. He is surrounded by lifelong friends and Barcelona players and who knows the effect that might have on him, I still feel he will stay but I’m not so confident as a few days ago before the Pique comments.
