Cesc Fabregas has assured Arsenal teammates he will not leave them this summer.

The News of the World says the Gunners skipper is the No 1 summer transfer target for Barcelona and Manchester City.

He could earn a fortune at either club and Barca superstar Lionel Messi claims Fabregas WILL become a sparring partner at the Nou Camp. But Gunners team-mate Alex Song insists the Spaniard will snub any offers to stay at the Emirates.

Song said: "Cesc is very important to us and he will be at Arsenal next season.

"It's good news. I am 100 per cent sure he will stay because we talk every single day. He loves Arsenal too much to leave and he's told me he wants to win things at this club.

"He has never mentioned even thinking about going to Barcelona.

"People talk too much. There is too much speculation. It's too easy to start rumours, but we have a fabulous team spirit and we want to win together.

"We are good friends on and off the pitch, we socialise together and we are united."
