Cesc tells Arsenal he will give up £5M to earn Barcelona move

Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas is willing to cough up big to clinch his dream return to Barcelona. The People says he is willing to sacrifice a £5million windfall to ­secure his dream move to Barcelona.

The midfielder has a clause in his Arsenal contract that entitles him to 15 per cent of the cash from any move away from the Emirates.

The Gunners are desperate to keep their inspirational skipper and this week turned down a £27m bid.

But Barca are set to return with an improved offer that could be as high as £33m - with Fabregas giving up his £5m share to force through the transfer.

Fabregas is keen to leave Arsenal on good terms after eight years in north London and hopes his gesture will oil the wheels on a move back to his boyhood club.
