Guardiola wanted to sell Fabregas, Pique, Villa & Dani Alves The 41-yr-old felt the quartet did not fit into the Blaugrana team for a variety of reasons, but the club feared a backlash from supporters if they had departed.

Pep did nt seem committed to Fabregas, Pique & Alves, while the reasons for Villa leaving were sporting.
