Barcelona have taken the tapping up of Arsenal players to a whole new level.

Gone have the days of making outrageous claims to outrageous prices for our outrageous player, oh yes, now the Catalans have decided they aren’t going to pay much for the players……..and the want the players to beg for a transfer.

Barcelona nutcase Txiki Beguiristain says Barca won’t break the bank for Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas and he must ‘show desire’ to return to Barcelona.

‘He is a great player but the circumstances of his departure make things very difficult,’ Beguiristain told Avui.

‘We cannot pay a great quantity for a homegrown player that decided to leave us. To start with he would have to show his desire to return.’

How far can Barca push it before action is taken?
