Barcelona table improved £34M bid for Arsenal captain Cesc

Arsenal have fielded a new bid from Barcelona for Cesc Fabregas.

The Mirror says the Gunners last night received an improved £34million bid from Barcelona for club captain Fabregas.

It has led to Fabregas cancelling a public appearance at a football campus in Tordera, Spain, today so he can avoid answering difficult questions.

Arsenal rejected £27m last week but are keen to bank at least £40m.

Real Madrid were also reported to have entered the bidding yesterday with an offer of around £45m and Arsenal will be happy at news of a battle to drive the price up.

But privately, they accept there is no chance of Fabregas going to Madrid as negotiations are too far advanced and the player has set his heart on Barcelona.
