Cesc Fabregas Rules Out Move
With the summer transfer window now open, there is plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Cesc Fabregas insists he wants to remain at Barcelona.
Former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has poured cold-water over a potential return to England by insisting he want’s to continue to ‘live the dream’ and become a success with Barcelona, according to the Independent.
The 26-year-old spent eight years at Arsenal before making the move back to his homeland in 2011 but his time at the Nou Camp hasn’t gone according to plan with the midfielder struggling to hold down a regular first team spot and when he does play he’s often played out of position.
This has lead to speculation suggesting the Spanish international could be set to make a dramatic return to the Premier League this summer with the Independent claiming both Manchester United and former club Arsenal are interested in luring him back to England.
The newspaper suggests new United boss David Moyes is keen to add to his central midfield options this summer and Fabregas is understood to be a key target while Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is being backed to spend heavily in the market and would surely be interested if his former skipper became available.
However, Fabregas has played down reports he’s unsettled at Barca and insists he’s focussed on becoming a success in Spain and will continue to live his dream unless he’s told by the club he’s no longer wanted.
“It has taken a lot for me to get where I am, and I am not thinking about throwing it all away for nothing,”
“If Barcelona said that they didn’t want me, that would be another thing – but what I truly want is to triumph at Barcelona. That’s been my dream since I was a kid.
“The way in which some people always invent things is fascinating.”
Fabregas has been targetted by some sections of the Nou Camp support with many fans booing him throughout last season, but the midfielder insists he’s prepared to put up with the rough treatment. He continued:
“If people boo me then I will have to cope with that.”
A move back to the Premiership would certainly be a dramatic one and I’m sure many fans, particularly those in north London, would love to see the little maestro back on these shores, but it seems as though Fabregas is keen to fight for his place in the Barcelona starting eleven and prove the doubters wrong.
