Cesc Fabregas has played down rumours linking him with a return to England, insisting he is happy to stay at Barcelona for as long as they want him.

The Spaniard, formerly of Arsenal, is wanted back in the Premier League by Manchester United, who are said to have offered £40million in an attempt to bring him to Old Trafford.

However, according to Sky Sports, he insists that playing for his home town club Barcelona is still his dream, and he is ready to deal with some of the difficult moments he has endured since his return to the Nou Camp in 2011.

“It has taken a lot for me to get where I am and I am not thinking about throwing it all away for nothing,” he said.

“If they 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.”

Fabregas is yet to reach his best form in La Liga, having been a star player in the Premier League for Arsenal since making his first-team breakthrough in 2004 as a 17-year-old.

The midfield playmaker went on to become club captain for the Gunners, but was left frustrated at Arsene Wenger’s side inability to win silverware, leading him to seek a return to his boyhood club.

Arsenal are said to have a buy-back clause in Fabregas’ contract, and first refusal should Barcelona ever wish to sell the player.
