Txiki on Cesc, Bojan and Cristiano Ronaldo

Asked about the rumours linking Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fàbregas (20) with a return to Barcelona (read more here), Barcelona sports director Txiki Begiristain seemed to close the door for the Barcelona youth product in an interview with Catalan television channel TV3: “He decided to leave, and the people who go take the risk of not being able to return.” Begiristain added that Cesc probably would have played in the first team if he had stayed, like other youth players who refused Premier League offers: “Bojan had faith, he refused an offer from England and preferred to rely on the opinion of our coaches who advised him to stay.”

Begiristain made clear that Manchester United right winger Cristiano Ronaldo (23) is "transferable" but not really a Barcelona target since that would mean that Barcelona would only focus on one player and that’s not the club’s policy.

The Daily Star has a slighty different interpretation of Txiki's words: http://www.dailystar.co.uk/football/view/31176/Barca-join-race-for-Ron/
