Barcelona confident striking personal terms with Arsenal captain Cesc

Barcelona are confident negotiations over personal terms with Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas will be smooth.

The London Evening Standard says the 24-year-old is expected to leave the club and sources close to the deal are confident personal terms will not be a problem.

Sports agency Kentaro is negotiating the image rights with Barca and the main stumbling block remains the two clubs agreeing a fee. Arsenal appear increasingly resigned to losing Fabregas and while they continue to demand £45m, it now appears they may accept £40m after rejecting Barca's initial bid of £30m.

Fabregas is on holiday and is thought to be keen to have his future resolved before Arsenal return to pre-season training on July 5.

The World Cup winner is due to make a public appearance in Tordera today and could make a public declaration on the situation.
