Arsenal fans slam Cesc Fabregas as he talks about former Real Madrid links

Premiership Picks

There was once a time when Cesc Fabregas was a hero at Arsenal.

Across eight seasons with the Gunners, the 110-time Spain international made 306 appearances in all competitions, scoring 59 times from their midfield.

However, in 2011 he returned to Barcelona. Whilst there were not many who could hold a grudge against him for that, his move to London rivals Chelsea in 2014 was not to be forgiven.

It appears that the 32-year-old could have made another big move as well, and a lot earlier than the eventual switch to Barcelona. In an interview with Spanish outlet AS, Fabregas has been speaking about a potential transfer to Real Madrid when he was just 18.

“They have the bigger mentality” – Spurs fans come to blows after the North London Derby in the video below…

He explained, “There were a lot of talks with Florentino, and with [Ramón] Calderón. They called me more than once or twice. The first time I was very young. I was 18 and they offered me a big salary, but I felt like I belonged at Arsenal. Wenger had bet the farm on me. I couldn’t leave.”

Whilst it may have been intended to show his loyalty to Arsenal at the time, it appears that the Gunners fans are unwilling to let sleeping dogs lie. Some have taken to Twitter to slam their former number four, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
