The former Arsenal captain finally got his dream move last summer after a long and drawn out transfer saga and seems to be relishing his move to the Spanish champions.
Walcott said on Fabregas’ move to Barcelona:
He was an absolutely fantastic player for Arsenal, throughout the years he was with us he went up so many levels. Now he puts on a Barca shirt and it just seems to suit him.
He was fantastic in an Arsenal shirt, but I think it just looks right and it’s where he always wanted to be in the end. That’s where he started and he’s fitted into the team really well, he’s scoring goals and enjoying himself.
It’ll be nice to see him again and it will be weird playing against him for the first time. I’ve played against French Arsenal teammates before.
He’s such a dominant player it’ll be interesting to see how he fits in against us, I’m sure we can cope with him. He’s coming off the back of a draw which is rare for Barcelona, but he scored, so he’s flying with confidence.
While it was a move many Arsenal fans didn’t want, it is great to see Fabregas still speak of his love for the club and also thank Wenger for the experience he was given at the Emirates.You never know, we could be seeing the Spaniard sooner rather than later depending on what happens in the Champions League!
