There are still plenty of contradictory reports in the media about Cesc Fabregas and his future at FC Barcelona. According to some reports, Manchester United are still fairly confident that the Spanish midfielder will accept a move back to the Premier League and Old Trafford. The Barcelona manager and vice president have insisted that they want him to stay, but the player himself has yet to make any public announcement.
His team mates and friends at Barcelona and Spain, Gerard Pique and Andres Iniesta, have spoken about the situation today as the players start their tour of Asia. According to them, Fabregas is happy and does not want to leave his boyhood club. Pique said that Cesc is living out his dream and that he never had any doubt that the midfielder would continue at the club. Iniesta declared that he was an important and talented member of the team.
His former manager and mentor at Arsenal, Arsene Wenger, is believed to keep in regular contact with Fabregas. He was asked about the situation at the weekend and, although he did not want to make any declarations, said that as far as he was aware, his former player would be staying at Barcelona for at least one more season. He will be keen to prove himself more and get the Barca fans on his side, because he has come in for some criticism since joining, and I am sure he will because he is a world class talent.
