Cesc Fabregas speaks out about Manchester United and Arsenal transfer rumours

FC Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas says he has not requested to leave Camp Nou for either Manchester United or Arsenal.

Cesc Fabregas says that he has not given any thought to leaving FC Barcelona, despite transfer rumours regularly linking him with Manchester United and former club Arsenal.

Reports in both Spain and the UK have suggested the 26 year-old may return to the Premier League due to ongoing frustration at Camp Nou.

Despite plenty of domestic appearances, Fabregas does not always gain selection in the big games. He was regularly shifted position and also substituted in nearly half his La Liga matches.

However, the Spain international playmaker told the Sun – who he used to write a column for – that he has not told either his agent, family, friends or press that he is looking to leave Barcelona.

“I’ve always said that I’m happy at Barca,” said Fabregas.

“Whoever says that I’m leaving doesn’t know me and has never spoken with me.

“Nor have they spoken with my agent, because he knows 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.”

The rumours will likely persist for the foreseeable future, with Tito Vilanova yet to confirm Fabregas as part of his plans for next season, and the 26 year-old hasn’t exactly won over the fans either.

A poll in Barcelona based publication El Mundo Deportivo revealed that almost 80% of supporters would sell Fabregas for €47 million Euros (approximately £40m), and with Neymar joining the club it is likely that Andres Iniesta will drop back into midfield on a more permanent basis – putting Fabregas’ place in the team even more under threat.

Fabregas’ future will likely continue as one of the biggest transfer sagas of the summer, regardless of the Spaniard’s words.
