Chelsea playmaker Cesc Fabregas has told a Tottenham Hotspur fan on Twitter that he has no intention of moving to the north Londoners - when asked if he should join a "big club" like Spurs.

Chelsea only managed to finish in fifth place in the Premier League, meaning they have qualified only for the Europa League rather than the Champions League.

Fabregas, 31, posted a cheeky Tweet after the Europa League's official Twitter account followed the former Barcelona star, uploading a screenshot and captioning the Tweet with: "It took them 15 years but finally I allowed them to follow me."

A Spurs fan replied to the former Arsenal star by asking the midfielder - who is currently working with BBC Sport as a pundit for the World Cup - if he wanted to join a "big club" like Tottenham, after they qualified for the Champions League.

But Fabregas' reply will have warmed the hearts of Chelsea fans by replying in no uncertain terms "no way".

Fabregas proved to be one of Chelsea's main creative sources once again throughout 2017-18, laying on nine goals in his 49 league and cup outings. However, his form was not enough to earn a place in Spain's World Cup squad.

It remains to be seen where the midfielder's long-term future will be, with only 12 months remaining on his contract at Stamford Bridge.
