Cesc Fabregas retains Barcelona dream


Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has again insisted that he is content to remain with the Gunners after they blocked a return to Barcelona in the summer.

The 23-year-old Spain international is still expected to head home to the Camp Nou at the end of the season, but Fabregas maintains that he is content to stay put for the time being.

He told radio station Cadena Cope:"I maintain that I was right because to play for Barcelona is a dream I have had since childhood.

"The truth is that the coach (Arsene Wenger) is like a second father to me. I told him what I thought. There were difficult moments.

"In the end, when I spoke to Wenger he told me 'no' – he was very emphatic, that the transfer was impossible.

"I am satisfied for all parties. It wasn't to be and that's that, though in my head I keep thinking it could have been a good opportunity.

"But here at Arsenal I have everything. I am still happy. I am very comfortable here, I like the club, lead the team, play football."
