    Wenger: Fabregas will not join Barcelona


    by ODN


    Arsene Wenger insists Cesc Fabregas will not be sold to Barcelona.

    The Arsenal manager also said no secret meetings have taken place between the clubs.

    Gunners chairman Peter Hill-Wood had claimed on Wednesday informal talks between the clubs had taken place over Fabregas' future.

    And Barcelona have denied brokering a deal with Arsenal not to try and bring Fabregas back to the Nou Camp this summer.

    But Wenger said: "We have not been in contact with Barcelona. There is an official dinner before every Champions League game but there have been no secret meetings. I don't want to sell any of our players.

    "We want to keep this team together. I can't understand the persistent campaign to get English players to Spain."
