Cesc Fabregas: Not thinking about leaving Barcelona

The ex-Arsenal midfielder is being strongly linked with a move back to England, with his former club and Manchester United said to be very keen.

Fabregas has enjoyed two good seasons in the Catalan capital since his return to his hometown club in 2011, scoring 20 goals in 60 league starts for Barca.

However, with the recent signing of Neymar, it has been suggested that Fabregas could find himself sidelined.

But the 26-year-old has seemingly given little encouragement to his English suitors.

"I have not opened my mouth once," Fabregas told Onda Cero when asked about the link back to the Premier League.

"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 they (Barcelona) said that they didn't want me that would be another thing, what I really want is to triumph at Barca, that has been my dream since I was small.

"The important thing in life is to accept the good and also bad moments when they happen.

"If they (the crowd) whistle me I have to accept it. I am the first person that knew it would be the biggest challenge of my life (to play at Barcelona). I only want to play. Barca is my home, I have always dreamed of triumphing here.

"Up until now everything has gone well. The important thing is to work and work so that you enjoy it more than you don't."

Barcelona vice-president Josep Bartomeu insisted that from the club's point of view, they would only let Cesc Fabregas - if he wanted to go.

"Cesc will only leave the club if he himself wants to move on," Bartomeu said at a fans event in Arenys de Munt.

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
