Cesc Fabregas: Back On The Market?
Is this the face of a sad, single man?
Many of you have asked, and now we’re finally ready to address.
Cesc Fabregas and Carla Dona Garcia: are they or aren’t they?
That’s a loaded question, to say the least.
We hope, by now, a majority of you have skimmed/read/looked at the pictures accompanying the The Sun‘s ‘confirmation’ of the Arsenal captain’s split from his 7-year-long girlfriend. Although it should go without saying that we’re taking many of their facts and sources with the tiniest smidgen of sand from the Sahara, in the newspaper’s 30th April story ‘exclusive’, Cesc’s father was (supposedly) the first to publicly stick a fork in the duo (much like Leo Messi’s outspoken grandfather once did) when he revealed:
“It’s a shame. They had been together for a long time and she was a lovely girl…But Cesc wants to be on his own. He preferred to end things before there were children or things like that.”
What’s interesting to us about Papa Fabregas’ words on the notoriously private couple’s potential children-filled future is that it somewhat seemed to echo a similar sentiment we heard from our own sources.
Apparently, in early April, Carla issued an ultimatum to her man*. Like all women with a ticktastic biological clock, Cesc was (possibly) warned that if he liked her, he should put a ring on it and take their relationship to a more serious and stable level. Our rumour survey said he was none to pleased with the make it or break it threat, and eventually called time on the twosome. Obviously, these whispers are in stark contrast to stories of Cescy being ‘cut up’ about the split, but after seeing a solo CF partying his sorrows away at Whiskey Mist mere hours after Arsenal lost to Bolton last Sunday (above, lead image), we’re apt to believe the writing on the walls (and his skin – which, yes, is new, but we know nothing more about. Soz).
While Spanish ‘friends’ of the couple are said to be surprised by the news because they were convinced Cesc & Carla would ‘make it’, Barcelona fans have been quietly hoping that this change in the player’s romantic tides will boost their club’s chances of securing his signature during the summer transfer window.
Yes, it’s worth mentioning that neither Cesc nor Carla have confirmed or denied the news and/or break-up reports, but really, we’re dying to pick your brains on this matter, Kickettes. Are you sad at the prospect of these lovebirds going their separate ways, or do you already have one foot out the door, headed for Whiskey Mist/Arsenal’s training ground?
