Barcelona prepared for 45 million pound bid for Fabregas

March 29, 2011 - London

Barcelona President Sandro Rosell has said that the football club is prepared to offer 45 million pounds for Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas.

Rosell, however, warned Arsenal that they have no intention of breaking the bank to land their former youth player.

"The maximum amount we have to spend in the transfer market is 45 million pounds, not counting player exits. If we do not sell any players, it will not be possible to sign any player above this price," the Sun quoted Rosell, as saying.

"Last year, we offered Arsenal 30 million pounds, and with each passing year, the player's price falls. The future of Cesc is in his hands and we could only negotiate with Arsenal if Guardiola insists. But only with a sale is it possible to increase the money for the negotiations," he added.

Barcelona manager Pep Guardiola is a confirmed admirer of Fabregas.
