Cesc Fabregas has put rumours suggesting that he could ditch Barcelona for Manchester United to bed, saying that he will stay with the Catalans.
The former Arsenal captain had attracted interest from the English Premier League champions, with manager David Moyes admitting that they had put in offers for the player as they look to bolster their midfield.
Barca continuously claimed that the Spain midfielder was part of their plans, including new boss Gerardo Martino - who was calm regarding the situation and recently stated that the player would remain with the club this season.
Fabregas himself has now come out to confirm that he wants to stay with his boyhood club, saying that it is a dream come true for him to feature for the Spanish giants.
"It has always been my dream to play for Barcelona and that has not changed. I am very happy with life at the club and I have never thought about leaving Barca," the 26-year-old said at a press conference.
"I never had any doubts about my future here. It cost me a lot to return to Barca and all I want now is to be successful here."
