Arsenal fans have grown accustomed to seeing their favourite players move to direct Premier League rivals. Whether it’s Samir Nasri, Robin van Persie, or Emmanuel Adebayor, it’s fair to say that few are well-received upon their returns to the Emirates Stadium.
Well the prospect of Cesc Fabregas being cast under the same umbrella of hatred is growing ever closer, as rumours emerge that Chelsea are first in line to snap up his signature from Barcelona.
The former Arsenal captain left the Emirates to rejoin his boyhood club in 2011, but he departed with good grace from the majority of the Arsenal fans. However, if he were to return to the Premier League anywhere other than back to his old stomping ground, Gooners don’t look set to give him the type of welcome he would be hoping for.
Here are some rather upset Arsenal fans:
Is tweeting what Cesc said in 2010 about granting people permission to kill him if he ever wears a Chelsea shirt not a subtle threat? #AFC

If Wenger let’s Cesc join Chelsea then it’s another kick in the teeth for Arsenal fans! Whether we ‘need’ him or not is irrelevant #AFC

The thought of seeing Cesc in a Chelsea shirt next season makes my stomach churn #AFC
