Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas admits he is in two minds over his future with Barcelona eager to sign him this summer.
The World Cup winner left Camp Nou as a teenager to join the Gunners, but with the Spanish champions prompting keen for him to return, Fabregas faces a dilemma.
“I’m a Barca fan, I’m a socio, as is my grandfather, my uncle, my cousin… I have felt the colours from a young age, I’m Catalan,” he told magazine DIR Emotions.
“However, I’m the captain of Arsenal, I’m a ‘Gunner’, and I have become a player there and matured as a person.”
During his time in England, Fabregas has worked under the tutelage of Arsene Wenger and admits to sharing a strong bond with his boss.
“He is a second father for me, the most important person in my life after my father. He has behaved really well with me and taken me in like a son. I am part of his family,” he said.
“He doesn’t want me to leave. And in my last conversation with him in London, it was one of the most difficult moments I have experienced. I ended up very upset.”
