Barcelona Need Cash From Cesc Fábregas Sale to Manchester United: Nightly Soccer Report

cesc fabregas2 Barcelona Need Cash From Cesc Fábregas Sale to Manchester United: Nightly Soccer Report

There’s an interesting development in the Cesc Fabregas to Manchester United transfer saga tonight as The Guardian is reporting that Barcelona need the cash from the sale of Fabregas to help the club’s coffers after all of the money they’ve spent in the past two seasons on Neymar, Alexis Sanchez, Fabregas and a new contract for Messi.

The highly placed source at Barcelona told The Guardian that “Barcelona are willing to sell because they need the money,” and that a bid of £35million could convince the Spanish club to let Fabregas leave.

On top of that, Fabregas is believed to be discontent about the latest developments at Barcelona where the signing of Neymar has placed Fabregas further down the pecking order in regards to attacking footballers at the Catalan club.

    It makes no sense the number 3 on Forbes list Barca valued at 2.6 billion needs £35m for Fabregas?

    • rkujay says:

      A team’s value is subjective. Unless you are selling the team, it’s value has little relevance. If your home is worth whatever, say one million and you have a tenner in your pocket, you might need cash. Complicate matters further if your house has a mortgage. For football clubs that translates to overhead.
