Barcelona head coach Josep Guardiola has, for the moment, accepted that Cesc Fabregas is staying at Arsenal, for one more season at least. "Cesc will not come," he is quoted in the Observer. "I believe it will not be possible this season.

"He is an important player for Arsenal and they have already sold Kolo and Adebayor.

"He is a very interesting footballer, but now he will play another year in England."
