Check in to Transfer Window: Done Deal Alerts

Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has once again denied that he ever asked the leave the club by telling TVE show Esport Club that he never wanted to join Manchester United, Sky Sports reports.

The Spanish international underlined how happy he was to be back at his boyhood club and said that he did not want to return to England just two years after leaving Arsenal.

United have already failed with two bids for Fabregas this summer, and there has been speculation that the Premier League champions will go back in with a third and final offer before the transfer window closes on September 2.

There had also been reports that he would have been interested in a move to Old Trafford should a bid for his services be accepted, but he has waved away those reports be claiming he is happy to stay where he is.

“I have never said that I could go, nor have I talked to the president or the coach about it,” he told TVE show Esport Club.

“What I don’t know is how this can be said to be true just because some journalist wrote it on Twitter.

“My dream is to stay here and succeed.”

Fabregas now wants to get to work on impressing new coach Tata Martino and win a regular starting spot in his starting line up.

“I have a great desire to achieve even more and I am committed to this club and proud to be here.”
