Barcelona are ready to make an improved bid for Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas. The Daily Mail says Barcelona are on the brink of tabling a third bid of £33.5million this weekend to finally end the two-year Fabregas saga.

Nou Camp vice-president Josep Maria Bartomeu and director Raul Sanllehi were in London to put the finishing touches to the offer.

More talks are planned with a view to having the bid on the table by Sunday.
