[2008] Cesc not sure about Arsenal future

this post was published exactly one year ago:

Asked about his future after his team's Premier League victory over Reading, Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fàbregas (20) spread doubts on his Arsenal stay in an interview with British television channel Sky Sports this Saturday afternoon: "My future? I really hope it belongs to Arsenal."

The Spanish international aired his disappointment about the end of the season with all trophies slipping away in the last weeks: "We are all disappointed for the season, how it finished. I think we did pretty well all season but at the end it was disappointing." Cesc, who recently has been linked with a return to Barcelona, clearly showed his impatience about winning trophies: "We don't want to always say 'next year, next year'. I think it is a mistake. We want to do it now."

Asked about the rumours that link several players of his team with a summer exit, Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger reacted with an indirect but clear message towards Cesc: "You can go to Real Madrid and Barcelona, but you have no more guarantees to win trophies. It would be criminal not to believe we could do it because we were so close this year. From this season we should get the belief we can win trophies and come back to win the title. That is why I am so insistent that I keep this team together and that we try to come back and have a good go next year. We have a very young team with a great future."

Wenger added: "Fabregas is part of our future and I want this team to stay together and prove we can win things with style."
