‘Barca Do Not Want To Sell Fabregas’

FC Barcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, has insisted the Catalan giants have no intention of selling Cesc Fabregas.

Spanish media recently reported that Barcelona had placed Fabregas, amongst others, on the transfer list, but Bartomeu has now confirmed that the club has no intention to sell the 27-year-old and other key players.

“We don’t need to sell players,” he told Spanish radio station Onda Cero.

"Barca do not want to sell Fabregas or any other players that may appear to be on the market."

Bartomeu also highlighted that neither Xavier Mascherano nor Xavi are set to leave Camp Nou, despite some reports claiming the opposite.

"Mascherano is a key player on the field, he stays at Barca,” he added.

"Xavi's contract ends in 2016 and he has two more years with the club. Coaches rely on experience for the future, and he has been at the club for 16 years."

Bartomeu revealed one of the club’s targets to replace Carles Puyol is Paris Saint-Germain starlet Marquinhos.

"The club is looking for a successor to Carles Puyol. There was a Barca before Puyol and there will be one after.

“Marquinhos is a good player but we are in talks with various teams,” he concluded.
