Barcelona: Spanish football giants Barcelona remain confident about signing Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas this summer.

Fabregas has told Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger that he wants to join Barcelona, but the Gunners are holding out for an astonishing 80 million pounds.

"We are working on it. We will try to achieve his signature and if we don`t get there with time, at least we will have opened a path," The Sun quoted Joan Laporta, Barcelona President, as saying.

"The possibility is always there, but Arsenal have to defend their interests and perhaps they have a different strategy," he added.

The 23-year-old has five years left on his contract at the Emirates, so Arsenal hold all the aces.

However, Laporta insists that Barcelona are trying to find a halfway point for both sides to agree.

"We have a player who has expressed his intention of coming to Barcelona. The player has said it and I want to thank him publicly for that decision, but we are being prudent in the sense that we are not going to do things that are not logical," he added.
