VIDEO: Cesc Fabregas is applauded for saying Barcelona is the only club he’d leave Arsenal for

The Premier League season is over and so the transfer lies season begins in earnest. And, if you weren’t tired of the Cesc-to-Barcelona story already, the two year old rumour looks set for another drawn out installment after the Arsenal skipper told a Spanish audience that he’d only leave the Emirates if his destination was the Nou Camp.

Fabregas received a round of applause from Spanish locals after he announced his latest feeling towards a move to Barcelona.

Fabrages: “If I decide to leave Arsenal, it will be to wear the shirt of Barcelona. I don’t know when this will happen though. I’m very happy at Arsenal. I’m in no hurry to leave the club. I want to make a decision about my future before the start of the World Cup. It’s impossible to perform at a tournament like the World Cup if you’re not fully focused on the sporting aspects of the game. I don’t want to be distracted by transfer talk. Barcelona are still playing for the Liga title and I’m still an Arsenal player. It would be a lack of respect to discuss a transfer now. No candidates for the Barcelona presidency have approached me, so I don’t feel used.”
