Fabregas - I will stay

Spanish star pledges future to Arsenal

Cesc Fabregas has pledged his future to Arsenal because he would 'love' to win the Premier League.

The Spanish midfielder starred for Arsenal last season as Arsene Wenger's young side narrowly missed out on domestic and European glory.

And that form is believed to have made Fabregas a top summer target of the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid and Milan.

However, the 21-year-old is adamant that he will not be following Milan-bound Mathieu Flamini or Alexander Hleb, who looks set to move to Internazionale, out of Emirates Stadium.

"I will stay at Arsenal," Fabregas said in The Sun. "My coach asked me and I told him he had my confidence.

"I'd love to win the Premier League and I am one of those players who fight for what they want until they achieve it."

Van Persie demands

Meanwhile, forward Robin van Persie believes Arsenal's wage structure is a reason why players are considering their future in North London.

The Gunners' top earners reportedly pocket 80,000 a week, while star players at Manchester United and Chelsea are contracted to 130,000, and Van Persie feels Arsenal must scrap their salary limit.

"Arsenal won't pay enormous amounts but should go to a higher level," added Van Persie.

"If a player can earn four times as much at another club, I can understand why he'd go elsewhere."
