Crazy morning...all kinds of sources are stating that Cesc Fábregas has stated his intent to leave the club this summer for Barcelona. Multiple sites make this claim (Sky Sports, for example, and The Guardian), and John Cross of the Mirror claims on his twitter that it is very well-sourced. The BBC have a much less intense story about the midfielder's future.
Without meaning to stir up the usual Cesc rumors that are so lame...Somehow this seems different than all of the others that have come before in its intensity and saturation, and in the fact that Fábregas himself is reported to have made statements about leaving.
More on this tomorrow, obviously, but this is worrying. This feels different.
