Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas remains hopeful of getting his move to Barcelona.

The Daily Mail says Barcelona have already had an offer of £30million for Fabregas rejected by Arsenal and are ready to raise that by a further £3m, a sum which is unlikely to alter manager Arsene Wenger's stance.

Fabregas is due back in England on Thursday and Wenger has called on him to end the talk of a return to Barcelona by publicly stating his intention to stay at Arsenal.

That remains highly unlikely, although, contrary to reports, Fabregas is not expected again to tell his manager that he wants to go, as he feels it is now in the hands of both clubs to sort out his future.
