Chelsea star Cesc Fabregas surprised his followers on Twitter by inviting questions on the microblogging site and the 30-year-old’s response to one particular fan had tongues wagging as the Spaniard admitted he could return to former side Arsenal in a coaching capacity sometime in the future.


Fabregas came through the ranks at Barcelona’s famed La Masia Academy before joining Arsenal’s youth setup in 2003. The central midfielder would make his debut for the Gunners senior side soon after and went on to make over 300 appearances for the North Londoners before rejoining boyhood club Barcelona for a €34 million fee.

A popular figure at the Nou Camp, Fabregas spent three seasons in the Catalan capital before coming back to England in the summer of 2014.

His return to English shores, however, didn’t go down well with a vast majority of the Gunners faithful for Fabregas had opted to join rivals Chelsea.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger reportedly passed up the chance to sign his former player and Fabregas was a instant hit with the Blues as they lifted the Premier League title in his first season with them.
