Cesc Fabregas insists that he would be prepared to sign a new deal with Chelsea despite reported interest from Manchester United.
Reports have suggested that Jose Mourinho, who signed the Spaniard for Chelsea in 2014, is keen on working with Fabregas again at United.
Currently on a deal which expires in 2018, Fabregas has insisted that he wants to remain at a club which has treated him well.
“Would I like to renew? Yes, because it is a club that has always treated me well,” he told the Evening Standard.
“I believe the fans have a lot of respect for me and I have a lot of respect for them. I have given my all for the club for the last three-and-a-half years.
“This is a fantastic club for me and I have had a fantastic time here. Hopefully another contract will happen. Time will tell.”
Despite being 30 years old, the former Arsenal man believes he still has a lot to offer to Chelsea moving forward.
“I know that people panic after players reach 30 and stuff like that, but I don’t believe in this,” he added. “I feel well, I feel young in my mind. I train every day as hard as possible.
“I think in the last 48 games I have played in 47, and I only missed one because I was suspended against Tottenham in August.
“I always try to give my best. I will play at any moment, even when I’m sick or not 100 per cent.”
