Fabregas asked to report back to Arsenal
London: Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas has been asked to report back to London on Monday with Barcelona deal still haggling over his move to the Spanish club.
Fabregas was hoping that the deal would be signed and sealed by now and was not expecting to return after holidaying in Spain.
Fabregas will undergo a series of fitness tests and is expected to be ready when pre-season training resumes fully on Tuesday.
Barcelona’s big test will be to try to complete the transfer before Arsene Wenger’s men fly to Kuala Lumpur next weekend for the start of their Far East tour.
Arsenal wants Barcelona to increase their bid after the Spanish club made an improved second bid of 34 million pound for Fabregas.
