The reason Ramsey gets more credence than Fabregas is because he’s always been professional. Even in the manner he’s leaving, he’s doing well. Playing for Arsenal, not putting in weird half-arsed performances and, for reasons that may be beyond his control, he’s leaving to go abroad.
I know Fabregas went abroad but let’s weigh it up. He was captain in his last season. He was never clear whether he wanted to stay or to go (never a good situation to leave your parent club in). He opted to sit in the stands with Pique at the Nou Camp during the 2nd leg of our QF with Barcelona. This was our captain who, injured or fully fit, should be in the trenches with our team, urging them on.
I just feel like Wenger invested a heck of a lot of time in Fabregas and, just when he was getting interesting, he upped and left. The manner in which he did so was unedifying. Would a club legend just so easily join a domestic rival just a few seasons later as well? (I know players don’t think like this any more, but it’s food for thought)
Ramsey has asked for a pay increase, not got it and is planning to move on while doing his job with his current employer in the meantime. It’s what all of us would do
