The ex Gunners midfielder is expecting to play against his former club on Saturday, and says that despite he spends a lot of time on the bench this season, he sees his future at Chelsea.
Cesc Fabregas has told that he is fully committed with Chelsea, and also admitted that it is hard to watch his team mates from the substitutes’ bench.
The Italian coach Antonio Conte has been scarcely using the midfielder this season, this season he has been linked to the likes of real Madrid.
He persist that the thought of leaving the Blue’s had not crossed his mind.
"I have never thought of leaving Chelsea. Madrid? There might have been calls, there might not have, but I am not thinking of leaving," he declared to Cadena COPE.
"The rumors over whether I am going or offering myself out tire me. Let them come out every [time]… apparently I want to go to 20 different teams.
"I am just one player. I will keep competing here. If I knew I wasn't good enough to play in this team, I would have moved away but I am very happy here. Not playing hurts but I know I am good enough for this team and I will give everything to play."
The Spaniard confess that he want to spend more time at the pitch after only scattered appearances in the season to date.
"It is tough being on the bench; I have never spent so much time there," he said.
"Every time I have entered [the pitch], I have felt really good. That leaves me happy after the games. I hope I can be with the team on Saturday [against Arsenal].
