Arsenal today rejected a £33m offer from Barcelona for their captain Cesc Fábregas, the fallout from which could spark a stand-off that lasts through the World Cup. The Gunners have reportedly told Barça to knock it off and will apparently not hear any new offers for the Spanish international midfielder. Yet Barça have officially set their sights on their home-grown and former youth team player and will likely come back with an even higher bid. Obviously something will have to give way before this saga is complete, though it is very possible that with the World Cup now just nine days away, the issue will be put on hold until mid-July.
