Fabregas: Future is out of my hands

Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas says his future is out of his hands and his only focus at the moment is on helping Spain to World Cup success.

The Spanish playmaker is understood to have told the Gunners last week that he wants to secure a move back to old club Barcelona over the summer.

While the Catalans have made contact with Arsenal regarding the midfielder, Fabregas admits he does not know where he will be playing next term.

He has made no guarantees he would still be a Gunner and he is instead focusing on helping his country lift the World Cup in South Africa this summer.

Speaking from the Spanish training camp, Fabregas told Sky Sports News: "I will only say one thing, I have great respect for Arsene Wenger, for Arsenal football club and for the Arsenal fans.

"Sometimes not even in my house I feel more love than I felt at Arsenal.

"I had a long conversation with Arsene, it was probably the greatest conversation I've had with someone in my life and I respect him so much and I don't want to say too much about this.

"He told me to concentrate on my football, he told me to concentrate on the World Cup, he told me to leave it in his hands, he will deal with whatever happens in my future and that's what I'm doing, just concentrating on football.

"It's not up to me any more and it's just now about Arsenal and wherever it has to be and that's it.

"I don't want to say anything else, I just want to be focused for the World Cup because it is the most important thing - the rest is the future and I'm not interested in the future."

The Arsenal captain was plucked from Barca's youth ranks in 2003 and it is thought the Primera Liga champions would have to pay in the region of £30-35million for his return, although the Catalans have not made a formal offer.
