Guardiola tells Barcelona: Get me Arsenal ace Cesc

Barcelona will now step up their bid for Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas this week. With the Champions League now won - and celebrations coming to an end, Barca coach Pep Guardiola is planning for their summer market campaign.

Sporting Gijon fullback Jose Angel is expected to be signed in the coming days.

And El Confidencial says Guardiola has told Barca president Sandro Rosell to do all he can to bring Cesc back to the Nou Camp.

Barca may be forced to sell one of their main players to fund a deal for the Gunners captain.

Rosell intends to offer no more than £20 million for Cesc - which falls well short of Arsenal's £60 million valuation.
