London: Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas has told his teammates that he will never play for the Gunners again.
Fabregas made the shock admission as pre-season training started this week.
Barcelona has offered 31.6 million pounds for Fabregas, but Arsenal wants 40 million pounds.
Fabregas is anxious for the deal to go through before Sunday, as he does not want to travel with Arsenal on their tour of Malaysia and China, The Sun reports.
Barcelona director Javier Bordas said: “It’s true the player is making gestures to come to Barcelona.”
