London - Spanish and Barcelona superstar Cesc Fabregas says Arsenal simply "cannot afford to lose" their captain and striker Robin van Persie.
Van Persie took over the Gunners captaincy when Fabregas left the English club for European champions Barcelona in the summer. Now, the Spain midfielder expects Arsenal to do everything they can to tie Van Persie down to a new long-term contract.
"I don't know if they will keep him," Fabregas said to the press. "It is his decision. At his age, if he wants to move, it will be his last chance and it he wants to stay he will stay and retire at Arsenal."
