Cesc Fabregas hasn't spoken to Arsene Wenger since joining Chelsea

Published Add your comment

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has revealed he hasn't heard from Arsene Wenger since Arsenal turned down the chance to re-sign him, prompting a surprise summer move to Stamford Bridge.

The Sun on Sunday carries quotes from the Spain international who insists he's not feeling too despondent despite no contact with his former mentor who he enjoyed many memorable years playing under during his time in north London.

Fabregas made the controversial switch to Chelsea after the Gunners boss declined to activate the buy-back option inserted into the original deal that saw him leave the Emirates Stadium for an emotional return to Barcelona in 2011.

"No, he hasn't spoken to me since I came back," he explained. "And it was the kind of relationship I always would have liked to keep.

"But I'm sure once everything dies down a bit in the future we will talk. There is no problem.

"I'll always be grateful to him whatever happens."

New start

The 27-year-old has made no secret of his gratitude towards Wenger and his everlasting affection for Arsenal, but he's professional enough to know that he was brought in by Jose Mourinho in a £27 million deal to help improve Chelsea's Premier League title chances and he is fully focused on the task ahead.

During his time in Spain at Camp Nou, Fabregas admitted that he tried to maintain some form of relationship with the Gunners boss, who initially did keep up appearances with a flurry of messages.

"On his birthdays, for his 1,000th game, he always had a text message from me. But I don't expect anything from anyone in life, positive or negative.

"I understand his decision and, now I'm at Chelsea, I'll do everything to make this club win."
