Cesc Fabregas has revealed Arsenal’s special style of play helped convince him to move to the north London club instead of Manchester United.

The Spaniard came through at Barcelona’s famous La Masia Academy, but decided to make the switch to the Gunners in 2003, citing boss Arsene Wenger as a major influence.

Fabregas burst onto the scene after making his first-team debut at just 16 years and went on to make over 200 appearances for the club.

“I was also taking to Manchester United, because they were calling me and stuff like that but i just felt Arsenal was the club. It was the club,” Fabregas.

Fabregas recalled the moment legendary former Gunners manager Arsene Wenger personally convinced him and his family to join the club.
