Fabregas focused on World Cup

26 May 2010 01:38

Cesc Fabregas insists his thoughts are focused solely on the World Cup and recovering from his injury and not on transfer speculation linking him with a move to Barcelona.

Barca are keen to bring Fabregas back to Spain and confirmed this week they have made initial contact with Arsenal regarding the 23-year-old playmaker, although without yet making an offer.

But Fabregas said: "I'm very calm. A World Cup is too important to think about other things. I'm 100% focused and recovering from the injury, the only important thing is to form part of this team and play in the World Cup."

Fabregas, who was on the Catalan club's books as a youngster before moving to London seven years ago, has previously revealed his desire to return to Barca.

However, an imminent resolution to the situation seems unlikely, and Fabregas insists his mind is now set on international matters.

He added: "When I play it's always to win and help my team-mates. I will give everything to help Spain be champions."

Fabregas missed the end of the Barclays Premier League season after suffering a cracked bone in his fibula during the Champions League quarter-final first leg clash against Barca on March 31.

However, he said of his recovery: "The feelings couldn't be better after training three days normally. Now it's as if I'm in pre-season, I have heavy legs which is normal at the start."
