Cesc Fabregas says he can empathise with Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes, who has told the Spanish club he wants to leave and explore a new football culture when his contract expires.
But former Arsenal skipper Fabregas says that his own travel bug has left his system, after his emotional homecoming.
And the Spanish international midfielder now wants to see out the rest of his playing days in the familiar warmth of the Camp Nou.
"What Victor wants to experience now I went through when I was young and it was fantastic for me," said Fabregas, who quit Barca in search of his fortune in England at the age of 16.
"But now I have returned and I want to stay, if I can and if I deserve to, forever."
Some Arsenal fans still retain a sentimental desire for Fabregas to return to the Emirates someday, to win the trophy that eluded him while he was there.
But Fabregas gently suggests a return to the Gunners is unlikely, as playing for Barca gives him the best opportunity to realise his ambitions in football.
And for now, Cesc’s most pressing ambition is to help the Blaugrana win this season’s Uefa Champions League, which continues for them next week against AC Milan.
"For me, to win the Champions League with Barca would be the best dream I could have as a football player," Fabregas said.
"Our game against AC Milan is the most important of the season and although people say that Milan are not the same as in previous seasons it will still be a great challenge in a difficult stadium."
