On Thursday, United boss David Moyes revealed that the English champions’ attempts to sign Fabregas were “ongoing” after two reported bids had been rejected.
Martino, asked about Fabregas, insisted: “If the club has signalled its refusal twice, then I signal it a third time — and so he (Fabregas) will be staying here.”
Barca vice-president Josep Maria Bartolomeu confirmed: “We are not thinking of selling Cesc. That United are showing interest in Cesc is normal, because he’s a great player. That makes us proud.”
