Cesc Fabregas has insisted that he feels in top shape as he approaches the final few years of his career at Chelsea.

The midfielder turned 30 earlier this year after he helped the Blues win the Premier League title for a second time in three seasons last term.

Fabregas’s current contract at Stamford Bridge is set to expire at the end of next season but he is believed to be keen on extending his stay at Stamford Bridge.

The former Arsenal captain accepts that he is approaching the end of his career at the top level, but he insists that he is still feeling in top shape and hopes to continue his good form for a number of seasons.

Fabregas is quoted as saying by Metro: “I know that people panic after players reach 30 and stuff like that, but I don’t believe in this.

“I feel well, I feel young in my mind. I train every day as hard as possible.

“I think in the last 48 games I have played in 47, and I only missed one because I was suspended against Tottenham in August.

“I always try to give my best. I will play at any moment, even when I’m sick or not 100 per cent.”

The ex-Barcelona star will be hoping to feature for Chelsea when the Blues take on Manchester United in the Premier League at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

The west London side head into the game looking for a victory to close the gap to Jose Mourinho’s men down to four points.

Manchester United are currently second in the table and five points behind leaders Manchester City after 10 games of the new campaign.
