No interest from Barca - Wenger

Arsenal may yet hold onto their skipper Cesc Fabregas, after Arsene Wenger insisted Barcelona haven’t contacted him with an offer for the star Spaniard.

While European champions Barcelona openly courted Fabregas last season, Wenger refused to sell his prized possession.

And despite Fabregas appearing clear in his ambition to head back to his homeland, the captain has led Arsenal to pressure Manchester United and Chelsea for the title this season, as well as beating
Barcelona in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16 match.

While the season ended in ultimate disappointment for the London club, with Arsenal enduring a sixth trophy-less season in a row, Wenger has insisted that Fabregas won’t leave the club in pursuit of silverware.

Wenger said: “There was an interest from Barcelona last year which I won't hide. This year there hasn't been an interest.
“My No.1 wish is to keep Fabregas - for me he is the best midfielder in the world and we
naturally built the team around him."

With the off season well in full swing, and time to prepare for a trophy push next season, Wenger said he is heading to South America to scout new players before returning to Arsenal’s Asian tour and pre-season training.

"I'm going to supervise players in South America then I am coming back,” the Arsenal manager said.
