Ray Parlour gives amusing verdict on whether Cesc Fabregas will return to Arsenal

By Amir Mir

Ray Parlour has suggested that Cesc Fabregas has more chance of joining Millwall than returning to Arsenal.

Fabregas returns to his old club on Saturday evening when Chelsea take on their London rivals at the Emirates stadium.

Arsenal supporters did not take too kindly to their former player joining their rivals from Barcelona in 2014, despite previously stating he would never play for the Stamford Bridge club.

Asked on Wednesday if he can see Fabregas returning to the north London club, ex-Arsenal midfielder Parlour claimed there is no chance of it happening.

“He’s got more chance going Millwall than Arsenal,” Parlour told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show on talkSPORT. “How many midfielders have Arsenal got, they don’t need a player like Fabregas.”

Fabregas made 302 appearances for Arsene Wenger’s side scoring 58 goals and assisting 91, before making a move to his boyhood club Barcelona in 2011.

The Spain international returned to England in 2014, but joined Arsenal’s London rivals Chelsea, where he lifted the Premier League crown in his first season and provided 19 assists in 34 Premier League games.

Fabregas scored a brace to help Antonio Conte’s side progress through to the next round of the EFL Cup when Chelsea beat Leicester 4-2 after extra-time.

Wenger’s side boast one of the best midfield’s in the country with Granit Xhaka, Santi Carzola, Francis Coquelin, Mohamed Elneny, Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey all vying for three places in the middle of the park.
