Fabregas warning for City over Kaka pursuit

Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has warned Manchester City that their vast wealth will not guarantee success after their £107-million bid to bring AC Milan ace Kaka to Eastlands.

Fabregas, who is currently on the sidelines recovering from a serious knee injury, has followed manager Arsene Wenger's lead and warned fans against expecting instant results.

The Spanish international told The Sun: ''A team is not built by the cheque-book alone. Money is not the most important thing in football. I think the important thing is not to rush into signing a new player just because money is available.

''A good team will develop naturally and trying to speed up this process with lots of money can be dangerous. If the club is well run, and the money they now have is well spent on building a good team, Manchester City will be dangerous. But money cannot work a miracle overnight.

''For example, Manchester United have an expensive team. Yet they won the title because they were a strong group of players, who played good football and had the belief. Their philosophy of attacking football was clear and they were rewarded for that.''

Fabregas prefers Arsenal's approach to the game, where young talent is nurtured by Arsene Wenger, and he insists no team has a divine right to success.

He added: ''At Arsenal we prefer to develop young players and give them their chance, as I was given my chance when I was a teenager.

''Other clubs can spend what they like but we are happy with the way we do things here. I have to say I feel lucky to be at Arsenal and part of the club's philosophy.

''I am sure City will now have bigger ambitions. But only time will tell how successful City become. At Arsenal, we do not have the right to qualify for the Champions League every season. And City do not have that right either just because they are now very rich.

''In the future, City can perhaps be a top four team. With the foundations they have and what may happen in the future, anything is possible.''
