Cesc Fabregas to Arsenal fans is like that ex-partner who you know you shouldn’t want back but always do.
- Fabregas made 29 Premier League appearances for Chelsea last season
- Playmaker is reportedly surplus to requirements under Antonio Conte
- Arsenal fans would love to see 30-year-old in red and white again
With the news that Fabregas, who left Arsenal for boyhood club Barcelona in 2011 and later signed for rivals Chelsea, is apparently surplus to requirements at Stamford Bridge next season, Gooners are pretty keen on taking the playmaker back.
It seems that no matter how messy the break-up was – and it WAS messy – Arsenal fans will always remember Cesc as the exciting Spaniard who dazzled in the Premier League as a teenager, and scored that goal late on against AC Milan to send Arsenal into the Champions League quarter-finals in 2007/08.
Therefore, while he’s quite not the player he used to be, we put the question to you: Would you want Cesc back?
And while there were one or two who still hold a grudge against the 30-year-old, the rest would love to see him back playing in red and white again.

100%! Perfect replacement for the crocked and injury prone Cazorla.

Yes if we're not going to get a better player, who's available?
I don't think we're in a position right now to b senstive to old wounds

I still have more of an emotional attachment to him than 80% of our current squad.

Yes..would be great for us in the Santi role I think

Absolutely. In a heartbeat. I think he'd like to finish his career at Arsenal too.

Yes and anybody who says different doesn't know about football
— Ryan Snelgrove (@RyanSnelgrove81) June 12, 2017
Yes. Regardless of everything he is still a quality player capable of changing games.

yes, as a back up to Ramsey and Ozil, or to use alongside AR and GX in a 352. Squad depth matters.

Unpopular opinion with some Arsenal fans, but I'd take Cesc Fabregas back in a heartbeat. He's a winner, a leader & he knows the club.
