Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has revealed that he was flattered by interest from Premier League champions Manchester United, reports BBC Sport

The Spanish international was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford this past summer, however opted to stay with the Catalan giants. 

However, despite being linked to David Moyes' side, Fabregas has insisted that he's enjoying life at the Spanish giants.

Speaking to Football Focus, Fabregas said: "I do follow the Premier League a lot and it's always flattering when a club like Manchester United talks very well about you and you can see they want you.

"But I'm going through an amazing moment [at Barcelona] now.

"I'm playing every week and I feel very important to the team," he said. "I'm very happy right now.

"This season I have felt more like myself, with more freedom and more secure with the way I like to play. It's not easy when you know you have to convince many fans how good you are and how good you can be for the team.

"The manager [Gerardo Martino] has trusted me and given me what I needed. I'm probably going through my best spell here."

Manchester United fans would have wished that Fabregas had arrived through the gates of Old Trafford last summer. 

Manchester United have had a nightmare season under Moyes this season and the Red Devils' midfielders have all struggled at times in this campaign. 

The Red Devils look set to miss out on Champions League qualification, as the club currently sit in seventh place in the Premier League. 

Manchester United fans will now be hoping that two of Moyes' recruits in Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini step up for the remainder of the season.
