Outgoing Barcelona president Joan Laporta suggested recently that a deal is already in place to sign the Spain midfielder.

"I am at a great club with a great team and am happy," he said. "We have a long season in front of us and the last thing I want to do is get disconnected from what I have to do playing for Arsenal, who are the club which pays me."

"I have never really thought about it, staying here all my life, because I am only 22 and you never know what your career will bring," he said. "It is my seventh season now. I am really happy, better than ever, so you never know."

Fabregas, who has been at Arsenal for six years since joining the club at 16, said such speculation had been going on throughout his career.

"It does not affect me at all," he said. "(It) has been going for years. I don't mind really if it happens, it happens. I do not think about it because I do not want to and I do not think I should."
