Fabregas focussed on winning trophy

Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has reiterated his desire to remain at the North London club, but hinted that a return to former club Barcelona could be beginning to appear on the horizon.The 22-year-old midfielder has made more than 160 league appearances for the Gunners since arriving from the Catalan side's youth ranks in 2003.

But he has long been linked with a big-money move back to the Camp Nou, with the European champions believed to have been weighing up an offer for his services during the close-season.

However, Fabregas has since insisted that his No.1 priority remains to finally win another trophy with the Gunners following their 2005 FA Cup triumph, but that he continues to hold a huge amount of admiration for the Spanish treble winners and their coach, Pep Guardiola.

“I know all about the speculation about Barcelona but you have to understand I am a professional and I am an Arsenal player," he told Goal.com UK

"We have made a good start and we can go on to do good things this season. As a youngster I admired Guardiola and Michael Laudrup at Barca. I learnt many things there, but it’s important to be yourself.

“You can never know what will happen in football, and it’s always an honour to be linked with a prestigious club like Barcelona, who I know all about. But let’s see how Arsenal does this season. I am sure we will win something soon.

“I am comfortable here and Arsene Wenger has helped me a lot and for that I will always respect him.

“I would like to win a major trophy again, but we will see.”
