BARCELONA’S new president has made signing Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas his No1
|Sandro Rosell was unveiled as the new Nou Camp supremo after scooping a
whopping 61 per cent of the vote in the club’s presidential election.
He replaces outgoing chief Joan Laporta — the man he famously fell
out with in 2005.
But despite their differences remaining well-documented, the pair embraced
last night after the results were announced.
And Rosell claims his first intention is to speak to his predecessor regarding
the move for 23-year-old Fabregas.
Barcelona have already had a £29million bid for the Gunners captain turned
down but Rosell is adamant the Catalans will get their man.
He said: “When Laporta and I get together, he will explain at what stage the
Cesc situation is at.
“If negotiations are advanced and the coaching staff want the player, we will
continue with the negotiations, without doubt.
