Arsenal have ordered Cesc Fabregas to attend today's fans' open day.

The London Evening Standard says Arsenal have instructed Cesc to attend their Members' Day at Emirates Stadium but are still expected to sell the midfielder to Barcelona before the transfer window closes on August 31.

The 24-year-old resumed training this week following a hamstring injury that has so far ruled him out of the Gunners' pre-season, which has been blighted by constant speculation surrounding his future.

The Spain international was criticised for leaving at half-time during the Boca Juniors match at Emirates on Saturday when the Gunners threw away a two-goal lead to draw 2-2.
