Barcelona defender Carles Puyol believes that Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas is being forced to stay with the English Premier League club.
The World Cup winning defender insists that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is holding Fabregas at Emirates Stadium when he no longer wants to be there.
Puyol said : “He is having to stay at a club where he no longer wants to be for another year,”.
“I wonder how intelligent it is keeping a player who doesn’t want to be there.
“After seven years of great service, I thought Arsenal could have granted him his dream move.
“Cesc has given everything to Arsenal to try to win a trophy but they haven’t matched his expectations.
“I won’t say he is in a prison, as we know how privileged we are as football players.
“But after how clear Cesc made it that he wanted to be in Barcelona, I thought they would have granted him that.”
