Reports suggest that the Arsenal Captain, Cesc Fabregas, is set to leave the London club and sign for Barcelona within the next week. During heart to heart talks with the Arsene Wenger Fabregas admitted that the decision to leave has pulled at his heart strings.

“I’m a Barca fan; I’m a socio, as is my grandfather, my uncle, my cousin… I have felt the colours from a young age, I’m Catalan,” he told magazine DIR Emotions.

“However, I’m the captain of Arsenal, I’m a ‘Gunner’, and I have become a player there and matured as a person.”

Fabregas did though admit that it was not an easy decision and he appreciates what Wenger had done for him.

“He is a second father for me, the most important person in my life after my father. He has behaved really well with me and taken me in like a son. I am part of his family,” he said.

“He doesn’t want me to leave. And in my last conversation with him in London, it was one of the most difficult moments I have experienced. I ended up very upset.”
