Arsene Wenger claims Cesc Fabregas will be staying with Barcelona for at least for one more season.
The Arsenal manager’s words will be a disappointment to Manchester United boss David Moyes, who has already seen two bids for the Spanish midfielder rejected this summer and was considering a third.
Barca director of football Andoni Zubizarreta has said that United have given up in their attempts to bring the former Arsenal man to Old Trafford, although Wenger insisted he was not aware of any comment from Barca boss Tata Martino that it was up to Fabregas if he wanted to leave the Camp Nou.
“I haven’t heard that comment and I haven’t read about it, so I’m always a bit cautious to answer what a manager is supposed to have said.
“What I do know is that Fabregas will stay at least one more year with Barcelona. That’s the information I have.
“If that changes I don’t know, but I have been told that,” Wenger maintained at a Press conference.
