    Now for Fabregas! Chelsea set to launch £50m summer bid for Cesc after splashing out on Torres Chelsea are ready to test Arsenal's resolve this summer and launch an ambitious £50million bid to land midfielder Cesc Fabregas just weeks after landing his Spanish compatriot Fernando Torres.
    The Gunners captain is widely considered to be heading to Barcelona at the end of the season after missing out on a return to his former club last season.
    Fabregas, 23, left the Nou Camp as a teenager to sign for Arsenal in 2003 but came close to rejoining the Catalans in the summer after winning the World Cup with Spain in South Africa.


    But billionaire Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has reporetedly set his sights on gazumping a rival bid from Barcelona and will launch a £50m bid for the Spain international in the summer.It comes after Abramovich splashed out a record £50million on the final day of the January transfer window to lure Torres from Liverpool. Seemingly uncontent with his incredible British transfer record outlay on Torres, and the £25m spent bringing in Benfica defender David Luiz last month, the Russian wants Fabregas to turn his back on a dream move to Barcelona and switch his allegiance across the capital.


    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is determined to keep hold of Fabregas, however, and would be particularly reluctant to see him join forces with Torres at Stamford Bridge. The Frenchman is also confident that he can prevent his talismanic skipper leaving for Spain too and is understood to have slapped a hefty £60m asking price on the star. Abramovich is keen to restructure Chelsea next season with plans to welcome back former boss Guus Hiddink to the club to replace sporting director Frank Arnesen when his contract expires this summer, as revealed by Sportsmail. The first item on the Dutchman's agenda could well be to step up interest in Fabregas.
