Fabregas confident of success

Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has dismissed rumours that he is looking for a move to Spain by insisting his current club can become one of Europe's greatest teams.

The midfielder was linked with a switch form the Premier League to La liga by Spanish daily sports newspaper Marca, but Fabregas believes the combination of playing for Arsenal under coach Arsene Wenger and living in London suits him.

He said: 'I am happy at Arsenal. I feel valued here. I am made to feel an important player, I am relaxed, I live in a city I love, I have a perfect understanding with my team-mates.

'I have a coach who believes in me and that is fundamental because in Spain a trainer signs you and three months later you are out of the club. There are so many good things here that I am not thinking about leaving.'

Fabregas also believes Arsenal, who face Liverpool in a Champions League quarter-final second leg at Anfield tonight, will eventually be one of the big European teams.

'Arsenal aim to be one of the biggest teams in Europe, like Milan, Barcelona or Madrid, teams who have always been associated with playing well and winning,' he said.

However, Fabregas claims the Gunners will not change their philosophy of playing attractive football.

'We want to enjoy ourselves and play attractive football, for us and also for our fans,' he said.

'We must not forget that football has become a show. A lot of people are happy when Arsenal lose. It is as if they don't want attractive football to triumph.'

Despite his respect for Wenger, Fabregas does not believe his future depends upon that of his coach.

'I recognise that he has been a very important person in my trajectory. His (football) model is one that I love, as well as playing with my team-mates. I enjoy myself, which is very important, but when it comes to making decisions on my future, other questions arise, such as winning titles.'

Asked if he would like to play for Real Madrid, the midfielder replied: 'Who wouldn't want to play for Real Madrid?

'I have four teams which are a dream for me. One is Arsenal, and the others are Milan, Barcelona and Real Madrid, because of their history and style of play.'

Fabregas admitted it was unlikely he would play for Manchester United.

'You can't say definitely in football because professional life takes many turns, but I would try to avoid it,' he said.

'I love how Manchester United play and if they meet Barcelona (in the semi-finals of the Champions League), it will be an incredible tie, one of the best in memory.'
