Fabregas insists: "I'm going nowhere"

Spain international Cesc Fabregas has again pledged his future to Arsenal as the international transfer market hots up.

With Real Madrid embarking on a massive spending spree that could spark a frenzy of transfers this summer, the Gunners had feared that their skipper could be lured away from the Emirates.

But Fabregas, whose current deal runs until 2014, insists he won’t be following Cristiano Ronaldo back to Spain despite being linked repeatedly with a move to Barcelona.

“I see my future at Arsenal," he told Arsenal TV. "I have a long contract with the club. I would have never signed that if I did not think I was capable of making it [to the end of the deal]. The boss knows I really want to stay here.

“The press can write or say whatever they want. Since I was 18, they have been saying I’m going to leave, but I’m still here. 

"I hope I can be at Arsenal for many years and lift trophies like the Champions League, the Premier League, FA Cups. I am really looking forward to it because I am sure the future is bright here.”
