Cesc Fabregas has closed the doors on any move away from Arsenal Football Club for the 2010-2011 season in a statement confirming he is not going anywhere.
Fabregas did say in his statement that he cannot deny that joining a club like Barcelona was not an attractive move for him, as Barcelona is his home town, with his friends and family there and is the place in which he learnt his football.
“I cannot deny that joining a club like Barcelona was not an attractive move for me. This was the club where I learnt my football, it is my home town where my friends and family are and a club where I have always dreamed of playing. There are not many players in this world who would not want to play for Barcelona.”
Fabregas went on to talk about his many conversations he and Arsene Wenger had over the summer, both in person and over the phone. He also told of how Barcelona had two offers rejected for him from Arsenal.
He then went on to say how Arsenal is the only club he will be thinking about and that he is 100% focused on playing for Arsenal, much to the fans delight
“I am a professional and I fully understand that it is Arsenal’s prerogative not to sell me.”
“I owe a lot to the Club, manager and the fans and I will respect their decision and will now concentrate on the new season ahead with Arsenal. ”
“I can assure all the fans that now the negotiations have ended I will be 100 percent focused on playing for Arsenal.”
“I am an Arsenal player and as soon as I step out on to the pitch, that is the only club I will be thinking about.”
“I am looking forward to the start of the season and putting this speculation behind me.”
