Manchester United's pursuit of Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas now appears to be finally over - after the former Arsenal captain announced he has no intentions of leaving the Spanish giants.
David Moyes has already seen two official bids turned down for the 26-year old and was considering a fresh club record fee for the Spanish international.
"Triumphing in Barcelona has been my dream since I was a child," said Fabregas.
"I am very happy at Barcelona and I haven't spoken to any other club in the last two years."
Fabregas returned to his boyhood club in August 2011, after Barcelona successfully pushed a deal through in the region of £35million.
Despite starting 30 of Barcelona's 38 league games, the Spaniard was rumoured to be unsettled at the club after continually being played out of position.
Speculation that he wanted a return to the Premier League persisted but Fabregas said: "Stories have been invented. I was never given any sign from the club to make me think they didn't want me, I have always felt wanted here."
Fabregas also revealed talks with club president Sandro Rosell and remains confident he still has a place in the side despite the arrival of Neymar and appointment of manager Gerardo Martino this summer.
"I spoke to [Barca vice-president Josep] Bartomeu, the president [Sandro Rosell] in person and Tata also told me he wanted me to stay and there's been no problem.
"I know what Martino wants from me, it is very clear. I will have to work very hard."
