Barcelona midfielder Alex Song believes team-mate Cesc Fabregas would rather “fight” for his Camp Nou future than leave the club.
The Spanish midfielder has been the subject of two recent bids from Manchester United but Song does not think Fabregas will be tempted by a return to England.
Song, who also played with the 26-year-old at Arsenal, feels his love for the club will encourage him to stay in La Liga.
“I did not speak with him but I know Cesc is 100 per cent here,” Song told Sky Sports.
“He loves Barcelona, he loves the club. He will stay here next season and give 100 per cent because I know him very well and he’ll want to fight. He’s focused on the club.
“He wants just to give his best for Barcelona. He’s from Barcelona, he loves Barcelona and he’ll want to start the season to show what he can do.”
“It’s my own opinion but I know he will stay here, 100 per cent.”
Song was speaking after Barca lost 2-0 by Bayern Munich in a friendly on Wednesday.
