Reports are growing that Fabregas could follow Emmanuel Adebayor and Kolo Toure out of the exit door at the Emirates Stadium and Barca now say they are interested in taking the midfielder back to the Nou Camp.
Barcelona sporting director Txiki Begiristain says no offer has been made as yet and also fears the European Champions could be priced out of a move anyway.
"It depends on how much we want to spend," he revealed. "If we spend a lot of money, it is possible (to bid for Fabregas). We do not know how much it will be yet. We have not asked Arsenal.
"If the amount is too high, we will not try."
