Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says club captain Cesc Fabregas does not need to be sold to fund a summer transfer spree.
Rumours are yet again rife that Fabregas will be on his way to Barcelona among other clubs this summer.
But Wenger has moved to yet again quash talk to the Spaniard's exit.
"We play our game against Manchester United on Sunday, and we are not on the transfer market," the Arsenal manager said.
"We do not want to sell our players - so all the players who have contracts will stay here unless we decide otherwise.
"We want to keep our best players. This is a subject that in fairness is not very creative.
"We have answered that in nearly 80 per cent of our press conferences and at some stage it has to stop, because the past has shown that this question is useless."
Fabregas' side face a must win game with Manchester United in Sunday, who have extended their lead at the top of the league over the Gunners to nine points, with Chelsea having leapfrogged Wenger's side as they beat West Ham United.
