London: Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas is so desperate to leave the club for Barcelona that he has offered to give up over four million worth of bonuses.
According to a leading daily, just a week before the start of the new Premier League season, Fabregas has told Arsenal that he will waive the payments in a last-ditch bid to force through a move.
The midfielder’s future has been the subject of intense speculation throughout the summer, with Barcelona having openly pursued the services of the 24-year-old.
Arsenal had earlier reportedly rejected a 35 million pounds offer, apparently standing firm on their 40 million pounds valuation of their captain.
