Though Fabregas' move resulted in some Arsenal fans burning his shirt, he insists he won't be affected by it.
"I'm mature enough for that not to hurt," Fabregas told Marca.
"I have explained it well. I've always been very loyal and grateful to Arsenal.
"There was a first option they could exercise, I talked with Arsene Wenger and he told me that the area was covered with Özil, but there is always fans who want to cause trouble."
