If it's a day of the week, it means that somewhere, a Barcelona player is talking about how Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas should join their team. And with the summer transfer window now open, the inevitable Cesc to Barcelona talk is once again playing out like a melodramatic tale of long-distance romance. This time, with David Villa playing the role of the longing and forlorn suitor.
From the Barca-centric Sport.es:
"Cesc is my weakness, I hope he comes. As a footballer, the whole world knows him and what he could bring us. And as a person, he deserves to return to Barcelona, his family is here and the club where he began." Villa also said that if Cesc leaves for Barça, "it would be a great joy, but I would be more happy for him because he deserves it, than for me, to have him as a companion."
So there you go. Some people have a weakness for chocolate. Others have a weakness for a pretty song. David Villa has a weakness for Cesc Fabregas.
