Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger expects Cesc Fabregas to stay with Barcelona for at least one more year, despite interest from Manchester United.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has declared that Cesc Fabregas will stay at Barcelona until at least next summer.

Fabregas has been linked with a move back to the Premier League with Manchester United in recent weeks, with Barca rejecting a pair of bids for the midfielder last month.

Wenger told Arsenal's official website: "I haven't heard that comment [that it is reportedly up to Fabregas if he leaves Barcelona].

"I haven't read it so I'm always a bit cautious to answer what a manager is supposed to have said. I don't know.

"What I know is that Fabregas will stay one more year at least in Barcelona, that's the information I have. If that changes, I don't know, but I have been told that."

Barcelona have reiterated their stance that Fabregas will not leave the club, with vice-president Javier Faus insisting the 26-year-old is very much part of their plans.
