thumbnail Hello,

The Premier League champions made no secret of their desire to lure the Barcelona man to Old Trafford, but the midfielder insists it is his "dream" to represent his boyhood club

Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas says it is his "dream" to stay at the club and that he was never interested in joining Manchester United.

The Premier League champions had been chasing the 26-year-old Spain international for much of the transfer window with the former Arsenal man rumoured to be unhappy over a lack of guaranteed first-team football.

9/2 Cesc Fabregas is 9/2 with Coral to open the scoring in the Supercopa
However, he has started both of Barcelona's La Liga matches so far this season under new coach Gerardo Martino and has now revealed that he dreams of playing with the club for the rest of his career.

"I have never said that I could go, nor have I talked to the president or the coach about it," Fabregas told Spanish TV station TVE.

"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.

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