Alex Song says he is “100 per cent” confident Cesc Fàbregas will stay at Barcelona this summer despite interest from Manchester United.

Red Devils manager David Moyes has made signing the former Arsenal captain his priority in the current transfer window, with the Premier League champions already launching two unsuccessful bids.

But Song, who played with Fàbregas at Arsenal before being reunited at Camp Nou last summer, is adamant the Spain international loves Barcelona and will remain at the Catalan side despite United’s attempts to sign the midfielder.

“I did not speak with him but I know Cesc is 100 per cent here,” Song said.

“He loves Barcelona, he loves the club. He will stay here next season and give 100 per cent because I know him very well and he’ll want to fight. He’s focused on the club.

“He wants just to give his best for Barcelona. He’s from Barcelona, he loves Barcelona and he’ll want to start the season to show what he can do.

“People are talking and talking, but we know he is focused here and ready to start the season.

“He’s enjoying a holiday with his family and I’m sure he wants just to come back here.

“It’s my own opinion but I know he will stay here, 100 per cent.”
