Arsenal transfers: Spain international Cesc Fabregas says he wants to finish his career at La Liga champions Barcelona
Cesc Fabregas has reiterated his desire to end his career at Barcelona despite speculation linking him with a return to the Premier League in the future.
The 26-year-old was the subject of two failed bids from reigning Premier League champions Manchester United in the summer transfer window.
Fàbregas joined Barcelona in a £35m deal from Arsenal in 2011 after eight seasons at the north London side, winning the FA Cup crown in 2005.
Arsenal had been linked with a move for their former captain in the past, whilst United could rekindle their interest next summer, but Fàbregas is keen to remain at Camp Nou.
“It would be a dream come true to retire with Barca,” Fabregas posted on his Facebook page.
“I will continue to work very hard to make that happen.
“Playing here is a dream and means everything to me because I have always been a huge fan.”
Fabregas has scored 34 goals and made 40 assists in 114 appearances for Barcelona in all competitions following his return to the Catalan side.
