The father of Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has revealed he does not believe his son will be leaving North London for Barcelona anytime soon. The 22-year-old midfielder, who has made 160 league appearances for the Gunners, has long been linked with a big-money move to his former club, who - along with AC Milan - are reportedly weighing up a significant offer for the Spanish international. However, the player's father, Francesc Fabregas, has now stated that his son is currently 100 percent commited to the Emirates Stadium outfit. "Honestly, I think this signing by Barca will not be produced," he told COM Radio. "Evidently, the football world is crazy and you never know, but today I think Cesc will stay at Arsenal. He is super committed to Arsenal and he is really eager to do things there." However, Fabregas Snr did admit that his son's former club, who he left in 2003 to join the Gunners, remain close to his heart, and that a move back to the Camp Nou one day is probably inevitable. "If the day comes [when Cesc joins Barca] then it will come, but as a professional and out of respect for Arsenal, where he has always been very well treated, he cannot say anything about these rumours. "Cesc is Catalan and a cule, and obviously he takes that with him all the time, but he gives it all for Arsenal, regardless of that feeling." NEWS: Milan tipped to move for Fabregas ARSENAL FANS!
