Fabregas: Future is out of my hands

The Spanish playmaker is understood to have told the Gunners last

week that he wants to secure a move back to old club Barcelona over

the summer. While the Catalans have made contact with Arsenal

regarding the midfielder, Fabregas admits he does not know where he

will be playing next term. He has made no guarantees he would still

be a Gunner and he is instead focusing on helping his country lift

the World Cup in South Africa this summer. Speaking from the

Spanish training camp, Fabregas told Sky Sports News: “I will only

say one thing, I have great respect for Arsene Wenger, for Arsenal

football club and for the Arsenal fans. “Sometimes not even in my

house I feel more love than I felt at Arsenal. “I had a long

conversation with Arsene, it was probably the greatest conversation

I’ve had with someone in my life and I respect him so much and I

don’t want to say too much about this. “He told me to concentrate

on my football, he told me to concentrate on the World Cup, he told

me to leave it in his hands, he will deal with whatever happens in

my future and that’s what I’m doing, just concentrating on

football. “It’s not up to me any more and it’s just now about

Arsenal and wherever it has to be and that’s it. “I don’t want to

say anything else, I just want to be focused for the World Cup

because it is the most important thing – the rest is the future and

I’m not interested in the future.” The Arsenal captain was plucked

from Barca’s youth ranks in 2003 and it is thought the Primera Liga

champions would have to pay in the region of £30-35million for

his return, although the Catalans have not made a formal offer.
