Van Persie and Fabregas Vacation in New York

Van Persie and Fabregas Vacation in New York

They have been enjoying their break at the end of the 2010-11 season - with a visit to see former team-mate Thierry Henry in action for the New York Red Bulls, and a match at Citi Field to see baseball stars The Mets.

Wenger said, 'There was an interest from Barcelona last year which I won't hide. This year there hasn't been an interest. My No 1 wish is to keep Fabregas - for me he is the best midfielder in the world and we naturally built the team around him.'
