Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has insisted speculation that he is due to return to the Premier League is wide of the mark, Sky
Fabregas originally left Barcelona for Arsenal as a teenager but returned to Catalonia in 2011. The 26-year-old has struggled to nail down a regular place in the starting XI, however, leading to the suggestion that United could attempt to bring him to Old Trafford to bolster their midfield, or Arsenal could push for a return to the Emirates Stadium.
The player himself has firmly denied he wants to leave his current club. Fabregas said: “I’ve always said that I’m happy at Barca. Whoever says that I’m leaving doesn’t know me and has never spoken with me.
“Nor with my agent, because he knows that I don’t want him to talk with other people about me. I’m very private and I don’t even talk about these things with my family. If someone says anything that isn’t that I want to play at Barca, it’s completely absurd.”
Fabregas made more than 200 appearances for Arsenal, scoring almost 60 goals from midfield.
