Romeu assures Chelsea fans: I will not do a Cesc

Oriol Romeu has assured Chelsea fans he 'won't do a Cesc' and pine for a return to Barcelona.

Romeu insisted he shouldn't be compared with Cesc Fabregas and is committed to playing for Chelsea rather than returning to Barcelona one day.

Fabregas spent eight years at Arsenal before completing a dream move back to Barcelona this summer.

But Romeu said: "I think the case with Fabregas is different. We left under different circumstances.

"My intention is not to think about the future, I'm concentrating on this season. I'm not worried about that [the buy-back clause]. It's not my intention to move. Chelsea have given me this great opportunity and I want to play as many games as possible. I could have stayed at Barca but I want to take advantage of this chance."
