The World Cup winner has once again seen his Stamford Bridge future called into question, but the midfielder is under contract and happy in England

Cesc Fabregas has shrugged off the latest round of speculation suggesting that he could leave Chelsea this summer.

The World Cup-winning midfielder was heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge during the summer transfer window in 2017.

He eventually stayed put and has remained an important part of Antonio Conte’s plans throughout a testing campaign in west London.

Fabregas sees no reason why he should be looking for a move elsewhere, despite Chelsea’s struggles this season, with his family settled in England and a contract keeping him tied to the Blues until 2019.

He told Cadena COPE when quizzed on renewed exit rumours: "I'm happy here and I want to stay in Chelsea next season.

"I feel good in London, my family too, so I do not see why I'm leaving Chelsea."

Fabregas has made 45 appearances for Chelsea this season across all competitions.

He has contributed two goals and four assists and helped the club through to the FA Cup final – where they will meet Manchester United.

He last won that trophy back in 2004-05, during his time at Arsenal, with a four-year spell at Stamford Bridge having delivered two Premier League titles and a League Cup triumph.
