Cesc Fabregas does not want to travel with Arsenal on their tour of the Far East.
The Gunners fly out to Kuala Lumpur for a nine-day pre-season tour but their wantaway skipper is desperate not to go.
Last year a move to Barca fell through after the two clubs failed to agree a fee and the player fears that history could repeat itself.
The Catalan giants have offered just over £31million with an extra £5m in various add-ons for their ex-youth star.
But Arsenal have, so far, been adamant they will only sell for £40m.
