Fabregas staying with Barcelona

6:11 am on 10 August 2013

The Spanish footballer Cesc Fabregas has pledged to stay with Barcelona, ending Manchester United's hopes of signing the midfielder.

United has had two bids rejected and were believed to have considered a third offer which would have broken the club record of $60 million.

Fabregas began his career at Barcelona and returned to the Nou Camp from Arsenal in 2011 on a five-year contract.
