Torres warns Fabregas over move

Fernando Torres has warned Arsenal's Cesc Fabregas to prepare himself for a backlash from the Gunners' fans if he moves to Barcelona this summer.

Barca won't up Cesc bid
Messi: Fabregas wants Barca move
Xavi: Cesc destined for Barca

Fabregas has not hidden his desire to return to his former club one day, but has always maintained that he remains loyal to Arsenal while still under contract. With Barcelona seemingly considering another bid for the Spain midfielder this summer - having had one of €40 million already rejected - former Liverpool striker Torres has warned his international team-mate that he will see the ugly side of the fans if he moves on.

''Everyone has their own story but from what I've read Cesc is grateful to [Arsene] Wenger and Arsenal,'' Torres said in the Daily Mail. ''But if you leave, you have to get wet. In the end, when you leave, you're alone. Football is very hypocritical in this regard.''

Indeed, Torres claimed that Fabregas should not let his relationship with the fans stand in the way of his career, something he knows from personal experience after moving from struggling Liverpool to Chelsea for £50 million in January.

''You have to give yourself the chance to make the step,'' he said. ''If you are lucky, then your club will help you, this is what happened at Atletico Madrid [when I left for Liverpool]. I knew people at Atletico and had good personal relations. But at Liverpool there were problems.

''Javier Mascherano did many good things for Liverpool but they did not treat him well when he left. It is a complicated situation when you leave a club but footballers always want to move forward, chase what he believes is better, because we only have eight or ten good years.''
