Barca Struggling To Finance Fabregas Deal

Barcelona’s pursuit of Cesc Fabregas has hit the buffers as they don’t have the capital to sign him.

The Catalan club are continuing their discussions with Arsenal today although wearethenorthbank.com understands that Barcelona do not currently have the funds to complete the deal.

They are still finalising the transfer of Udinese winger Alexis Sanchez and part of the hold up with that deal is due to Barca wanting to pay the first instalment of the agreed fee at the end of September.

Barca are looking to sell players in order to finance a move for Fabregas, with Bojan set to complete a move to Roma for €9million.

Barcelona have already had a £27million bid turned down as Arsenal value Fabregas at £40million.
