Francesc “Cesc” Fàbregas isn’t planning to go anywhere…
The 26-year-old Spanish footballer has confirmed that his plan has always been to remain with Futbol Club Barcelona, ending speculation about a possible move.
“I’ve never thought about leaving, I haven’t doubted for a single moment,” said the midfielder during a press conference in Malaysia, the latest stop on Barça’s pre-season tour.
Reigning Premier League champions Manchester United have approached Barcelona twice in recent weeks with offers for Fàbregas, who signed with London club Arsenal in 2003 and became one of the top players in England before a transfer to FC Barcelona in 2011.
“It cost me a lot to return (to Spain). I’m happy in Barcelona and my dream is to triumph with Barça. No one will change this,” he said Thursday, denying that he’d talked to anyone at Man United.
“When such an important team makes two offers, it flatters you, but at no time did I speak with anyone from United,” said Fàbregas.
