Cesc Fabregas has confirmed that he won’t be leaving Barcelona this summer, amid serious interest from Premier League Champions Manchester United, Goal.com reports.

The Red Devils submitted two bids to Barcelona for the midfielder, with both being rejected.

Man United boss David Moyes had made Fabregas his main transfer target for the summer, with the Scot hoping that the 26 year old would fill the void left by Paul Scholes retirement.

However, Fabregas has ended speculation linking him with a move to Old Trafford, saying that he never had any doubts about his future at the Nou Camp.

“It has always been my dream to play for Barcelona and that has not changed. I am very happy with life at the club and I have never thought about leaving Barca,” the 26-year-old said at a press conference.

“I never had any doubts about my future here. It cost me a lot to return to Barca and all I want now is to be successful here.”

Several reports had suggested that United were preparing a third and final bid for Fabregas, thought to be a club record £35 million but they will now have to move onto other targets.

Moyes could move for Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini, who he signed when he was the Toffees boss or he could tempt Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye to Old Trafford.

The Frenchman said recently that he would be interested in a move to the Red Devils and is thought to be unsettled in the North East.
