The ongoing transfer saga of Fabregas continues to develop with the player’s pursuers, Manchester United, reportedly offering the Catalan giants a third bid amounting to £40 million for the services of the 26-year-old.

That development was followed by the admission from Barcelona manager Gerardo Martino that Fabregas had “to decide” on his future.

But Faus was quick to again strengthen the club’s position that Fabregas, a player they brought through their youth system, would not be leaving the Nou Camp.

"It's a theme in sports. He has a contract, the club and the coach want him to stay," the vice-president told Sport.

"Come on, he will stay. The interest is real, but we have no intention of letting him go."
