Cesc Fabregas has told his team-mates he will be leaving Arsenal this summer, according to The Sun.

Fabregas has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona and a deal appears close to being finalised.

Arsenal have already rejected Barcelona's opening offer for Fabregas and have reportedly put a £40 million price tag on their captain, a fee that was rumoured to be higher than Barcelona's transfer budget.

The Spain international is a long-term target of Barcelona, and a deal was almost struck last summer, but it would appear that Arsenal's captain will finally complete a move back to his boyhood club.

Fabregas left Barcelona for Arsenal as a 16-year-old and made his Premier League debut a year later, maintaining a place in the Gunners' first team ever since.
