The Chelsea star is still loved by most Arsenal fans.

Chelsea ace Cesc Fabregas sat down for an exclusive interview with Spanish media outlet Marca, and refused to rule out one day returning to Arsenal.

The 31-year-old joined the Gunners from Barcelona's famed Masia academy way back in 2003, before returning to the Catalan giants for £30 million eight years later.

 

Fabregas has enjoyed a wonderful career in the game with two European Championships, a World Cup winner's medal, a La Liga title and two Premier League titles to his name.

He has also racked up an impressive 122 goals and 223 assists in 646 career appearances.

The 110-capped Spain international still commands legendary status at Arsenal, and he refused to rule out returning to the Emirates one day, when speaking exclusively to Spanish publication Marca:

"Of course, Arsenal will always be in my heart and I will never forget them so why not return. You never know."

Fabregas' contract with Chelsea expires in the summer of 2019, so if he fails to agree an extension with the west London outfit, Arsenal would be able to snare the Spaniard on a free transfer.

Whether Unai Emery fancies the Chelsea ace, though, remains to be seen.
