Cesc to tell Arsenal boss Wenger he does not want to be Cup-tied from Champions League
Fabregas makes his first appearance for Arsenal since the start of his summer transfer saga in tomorrow's friendly against Benfica, but he is desperate not to ruin his chance of joining Barcelona by playing for the Gunners in Europe.
And that is why Fabregas does not want to play for Arsenal in their two-legged Champions League play-off match, which will take place on August 16 or 17 and August 23 or 24.
Fabregas will tell Wenger he will continue to give his best for Arsenal in the Premier League while he waits on Barca to agree a transfer, but does not want to play in the Champions League.
