Arsenal Captain Cesc Fabregas Celebrates Spain Glory In Barcelona Jersey

Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has been pictured in a Barcelona jersey during Spain's World Cup celebrations.

The 23-year-old former Barcelona canterano has been a long term target of the Catalan club and this latest image, published by Spanish publication Marca is sure to heighten speculation of a summer move to Camp Nou.

Barcelona's centre half pairing of Carles Puyol and Gerard Pique were responsible for putting the shirt on Fabregas, while Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina was also in on the prank as la Furia Roja celebrate World Cup glory in Madrid. Fabregas had earlier declared that he is proud to be an Arsenal player while Gunners boss Arsen Wenger is reported to have refused to meet with Barca officials to discuss a possible transfer.

Another Version -

AS Spain celebrated their historic World Cup victory back home in Madrid, a few members of the squad had the perfect prank planned. While over 200,000 fans looked on in the Spanish capital, defenders Carles " Puyol and Gerard Pique snuck up behind Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas and forced a Barcelona jersey on him.

Not only did the two Barca players put the Barcelona jersey over him, but Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina shouted into the microphone: "The future of Barcelona!" The prank comes fresh after newspapers and football pundits have linked the Arsenal midfielder with a move back to the Camp Nou.
Fabregas himself has said time and time again that he'd one day like to return to his boyhood cfub, but Arsene Wenger insists that he is not willing to negotiate a price for his star player.

This incident is the second in recent memory where an Arsenal player linked with Barcelona has had a Barca jersey forced upon him. In the 2006 UEFA Champions League semifinals a pitch invader interrupted the Arsenal v Villareal clash to put an "Henry 14" Barcelona jersey on the Frenchman's shoulder. Gunners fans will remember all too well that their former captain went on to move to La Liga.
