Arsenal and Manchester United fans clash over potential transfer

Barcelona midfielder Cesc FabregasArsenal fans are unsurprisingly angry about the possible move for Barcelona ace Cesc Fabregas to Old Trafford, while Manchester United supporters appear to be reveling in their Premier League rival’s woe.

A few Gooners took to Twitter to express their absolute opposition towards their former midfielder joining last season’s champions, as memories of Robin van Persie’s departure reared its ugly head – with many also urging management to bring him back.

“If #Fabregas goes to #MUFC all my faith for loyal footballers is lost,” said one worried Gunner.

Conversely, United supporters seem more than happy to sign the Spain international, after the transfer of Fabregas’s former teammate Thiago Alcantara failed.

“If Barca really want 35 million for #Fabregas well then just pay the money for him. #simple #worldclass,” wrote one Red Devils fan.

There are however some United supporters who seem a little reluctant about the idea of a transfer – preferring to look elsewhere.

“I’d rather have #Fellaini than #Fabregas. We’ve been missing a nasty bastard in midfield since Keane. #MUFC,” said another fan.

According to Sky Sports, the Red Devils have already made a £25million bid, which apparently does not meet Barcelona’s valuation. The midfielder though has said that he wants to stay in Catalonia but if the Blaugrana decide to sell then it is reported that the Gunners will get first refusal due to a clause in the former club captain’s contract.

Here’s what football fans of both teams think about the possible transfer – let us know in the comments below what you think about a possible Fabregas move to Old Trafford.
