Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas says it is ‘hard to see’ former club Arsenal winning any trophies in the short-term.

Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas says it is ‘hard to see’ former club Arsenal winning any trophies in the short-term.

The Spaniard returned to his home club in the summer after eight years in North London and he has indicated that he departed at the right time as he cannot see the Gunners winning anything ‘in the near future’.

"I want to be in a club that is able to win the big titles year after year and I don't see that kind of future for Arsenal,” he told Sport magazine.

"I still have many feelings for Arsenal, but I fear that they won't be able to push the other big clubs in England away.

"If you look at the team this season I can't see them finishing in front of teams like Manchester United or [Manchester] City, or Chelsea. There's just too big a difference between the squads.

"I respect that Arsenal don't have the same financial opportunities as the others, but it was part of my decision to leave that I find it hard to see Arsenal winning the Premier League or Champions League in the near future."
