Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes, who has already revealed that he will leave the club at the end of the season, has expressed his confidence over Cesc Fabregas staying at the camp Nou beyond this transfer window.

The former Arsenal midfielder has been heavily linked with a return to Premier league football with Manchester United, who already have had two bids rejected for him. However, they are prepared to be preparing a third bid, which will increase the offer to £ 40 million. It will be hard to resist for Barcelona, who paid only £ 35 million for him in 2011.
