Fabregas, who played under Wenger at Arsenal for eight years before returning to his native Catalonia in 2011, has been the subject of two bids from United.

However, both have been rejected by Barca and Wenger is certain the 26-year-old will not be leaving the Nou Camp in the current transfer window.

"What I know is that Fabregas will stay on more year, at least, in Barcelona," said the Frenchman. "That's the information I have.

"If that changes, I don't know. But that's what I've been told."

Wenger's comments come after new Barcelona manager Tata Martino said he would leave it up to Fabregas to decide whether he wanted to move to Old Trafford.

However, those comments are in contrast to those of Barca sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta, who insists Fabregas is integral to the future plans of the Spanish champions.

"He has a contract with us," he told the club's website.

"We count on Cesc. I said that on the day of the presentation of Tito (Vilanova) and also with Tata (new coach Gerardo Martino).

"He's an extraordinary player who creates and finishes chances. We are delighted with him. He's the number four of Barca."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
