Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood has confirmed that his club have yet to field any offers from Barcelona for Spanish midfield ace Cesc Fabregas. The 23-year-old has reportedly set his sights on a summer return to the Camp Nou, where he started out as a youth team player, but Barca are yet to make their move. Hill-Wood told the Daily Star: "We have heard nothing at all and I am not looking for a telephone call from them. "As far as I am concerned, he is our player. If they want to make a bid it is up to them. "We are very surprised, but delighted (that there has been no bid)." Barca's technical secretary Txiki Begiristain had previously hinted that a deal was very much on the cards. He told his club's official website: "The player has shown his will to come to Barca, but we will not do anything until Arsenal want to negotiate. "We have the will of the player to come to Barcelona, but what we won't do is start to negotiate until an agreement is reached. "Cesc has a contract with his club and we will be very respectful."
