Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas admits he is torn between a move to Barcelona or remaining in north London.

Fabregas has long been linked with a return to Barca, the club where he started his career as a youth player, but Arsenal are unwilling to let one of their star players leave and have already turned down a £29million bid from the Catalan giants.

"I'm a Barca fan, I'm a socio, as is my grandfather, my uncle, my cousin… I have felt the colours from a young age, I'm Catalan. However, I'm the captain of Arsenal, I'm a 'Gunner', and I have become a player there and matured as a person," Fabregas said in an interview to magazine DIR Emotions.

During that time, Fabregas has grown up under the tutelage of Arsene Wenger and the Spain midfielder says the Arsenal coach is like a second father for him.

"He is a second father for me, the most important person in my life after my father. He has behaved really well with me and taken me in like a son. I am part of his family," he said.

"He doesn't want me to leave. And in my last conversation with him in London, it was one of the most difficult moments I have experienced. I ended up very upset."
