Deal Close: Chelsea to agree deal with Arsenal for WC winner, “Medicals in January”

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has hinted at a possible return to his former club Arsenal next season, four years after he left the Gunners by joining their bitter London rivals.

The Spanish made his name in the top-flight, scoring his debut goal in the Carling Cup as a 16-year-old, but then left Arsenal to join Barcelona in the summer of 2011.

But things turned sour for Fabregas in 2014, and after Arsenal failed to take up a buy-back option on the Spanish World Cup winner, he ended up moving to Stamford Bridge to sign for Chelsea.

However, he’s out of contract at the end of the season, and on the possibility of rejoining the Gunners, he said via Spanish newspaper Marca:

“In seven months my contract ends with Chelsea.

“It will be 16 seasons playing at the highest level, over 750 games, a lot of training, travelling.

“I feel young and strong but maybe I can’t do 60 games a season. With my style I think I can keep playing for longer and obviously I want to keep playing for many years.

“Arsenal will always be in my heart and I will never forget them so why not return. You never know.”

Perhaps surprisingly, there appears to be plenty of Arsenal supporters who would be willing to let bygones be bygones and welcome Fabregas back to North London:
