Desperate Barcelona offer defender Dmytro Chygrynskiy on loan in bid to lower price of Cesc Fabregas

Barcelona could offer out-of-favour defender Dmytro Chygrynskiy to Arsenal on loan in a bid to drive down the price of Cesc Fabregas. The Catalan club are continuing their very public pursuit of the Gunners skipper but have so far been met with firm resistance. Arsenal value their captain in the same bracket as Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined Real Madrid last season for £80million, whereas Barca are only willing to part with around £30m.

The 23-year-old Ukrainian moved to the Camp Nou from UEFA Cup winners Shakhtar Donetsk last season in a deal worth £21m but found his chances limited. Carlos Puyol, Gerard Pique, and Gabriel Milito are all ahead of Chygrynskiy in the pecking order but Guardiola still sees a future for him at the club. He therefore believes a loan spell would benefit both parties. Another Catalan star, Yaya Toure, had been ear-marked by Gunners boss Arsene Wenger as a potential target should Fabregas leave, but the Ivorian has his heart set on a move to either Manchester United or Chelsea.   Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas will be joining Barcelona, insists Xavi as Catalan giants prepare to make their moveBarca risk riling Arsenal by reminding Gunners their skipper longs for homeBarcelona issue Fabregas warning: We will not pay over the odds, says LaportaARSENAL FC
