Barcelona seek Thiago buyer to fund deal for Arsenal ace Cesc

Barcelona may sell the jewel of their youth system - Thiago Alcantara - to bring Cesc Fabregas back to the club.

El Mundo Deportivo says Barca cannot get close to Arsenal's £60 million asking price for their captain - unless they sell.

Thiago, considered the best of Barca's new generation of starlets, is now being considered for sale - not only for his value on the open market, but also as his progress would be further blocked by the arrival of Cesc.

Interestingly, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is among those coaches who admire Thiago, which could lead to a cash-plus-player swap deal for Cesc.
