IT COULD all end in tears and, no, we're not talking about another of John Terry's European adventures. Rather, the race to land Cesc Fabregas, which is hotting up as Metro claims that the two Manchester clubs have joined Arsenal in a bid to sign the Barcelona playmaker.

As we reported earlier in the week, the Gunners are toying with the idea of bringing back Fabregas into the Emirates fold, despite the fact he so shamelessly walked out on them three years ago. But now comes news that will cause a collective grimace among Gunners – Metro's claim that both Manchester clubs, City and United, are circling Fabregas with a view to a big-money summer offer. Apparently Barcelona's below par season means "the club is set for an overhaul" and Metro alleges that Fabregas is among those likely to be kicked out of the Camp Nou.
