Cesc Fabregas has finally spoken on his future at Arsenal this summer, telling Spanish reporters that ‘Barcelona are great club’ but he is ‘happy at Arsenal’.
The 23-year-old came through the Barca youth ranks before joining Arsenal as 16-year-old in 2003 and he has been linked with a return to his former side for the last three seasons.
Fabregas admitted his frustration at the Gunners’ repeated failure to win some silvereware but said he believed the club had the resources to end their barren run.
“A player who is not frustrated at not winning titles is either lying to himself or lacks ambition,” he said.
“There is a good team and a good manager and one of the most faithful fan bases in Europe. With those I believe we can make progress and one day win an important trophy.”
“I’m an Arsenal player, I’m very happy there and there’s nothing more. The rest is speculation. He (Wenger) is the boss, the one who makes the decisions. You should ask him. I was injured at the end of the season and I haven’t seen him for about six weeks.
“Barcelona are a great club, the best in the world, and playing there is a guarantee to win but I’m part of Arsenal.”
