Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas seemingly committed himself to The Gunners yesterday, claiming he wasn't going to leave until he's brought silverware back to the club.
In an interview with ITV prior to the FA Cup 3rd clash against Leeds United at the Grove yesterday, Fabregas said,
'Why would I want to leave? It is fantastic here, it would be a dream to lift trophies for Arsenal'
'Afterwards you can always be attracted by something else, like a new objective, or new challenges because, for me, life is all about challenges. But my real challenge as captain of Arsenal is to bring this football club success.'
'This is the biggest dream I can have. I want to end these five years without a trophy and, hopefully, I can do it this season.'
Fabregas was subject to constant rumours of a move to Barcelona last summer, even admitting handing in a transfer request, but ever the professional, Fabregas took Wenger's decision not to grant him his wish on the chin and got on with the job at hand.
I've been thinking for a few weeks now, and even said so on the forums, that Cesc's demeanour has changed over the last month or two, he's celebrating his, and the team's goals with much more gusto, his comments and interviews have pointed in a direction that suggests his mind has been changed with regards to his immediate future.
Wenger has also laughed off the possibility of accepting a new bid from the Spanish giants.
'I have a good sense of humour, but I don't understand this one. I cannot see how people can say things like that without us knowing it. We have the contract of the player and we would inform you if we would sell the player. We sell nobody.'
