Arsenal playmaker Cesc desperate for Barcelona move inside next seven days

Cesc Fabregas remains in London as his Arsenal teammates kickoff their first tour of the Far East. El Mundo Deportivo says Cesc is training at the club's HQ in anticipation of terms with Barcelona being agreed in the coming days over his transfer.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger insisted on Friday he did not want to see Cesc sold, but Barca and the player's camp are confident of a deal being struck.

Interestingly, Cesc is working with his personal trainer, David Alvarez, at Arsenal this week.

Alvarez was with Thierry Henry at New York Red Bulls earlier this year and also was the fitness coach at Barcelona B when Pep Guardiola was in charge.

Cesc hopes his move to Barca can be sealed in time for their preseason kickoff - which is slated for July 18.
