Fabregas returned to the Premier League with Chelsea in 2014 in a £27 million deal, having made 151 appearances for the Catalan club.
The 30-year-old began his career at Barcelona, prior to joining Arsenal as a 16-year-old, and he has now admitted that he still pines for his nearest and dearest, despite his undoubted happiness at Stamford Bridge.
“I have found absolute happiness at Chelsea,” he told Vanity Fair. “My family is delighted, they have totally adapted to life in London – I'm too happy [to switch clubs].”
In a wide-ranging interview, Fabregas, one of the most decorated players of his generation, also issued a word of advice to younger players looking to make their way in the game.
“Look at your bank account,” he replied, when asked the worst thing a young player can do. “You can get distracted by fame and money or the wrong type of people. I have seen young people with tremendous talent fail.
“And, to the contrary, I've seen less gifted players triumph on the basis of their attitude and commitment. Have a good head. Being surrounded by people who really love you is very important.”
