SkySports has reported that Barcelona head coach Luis Enrique has refused to be drawn on the future of Cesc Fabregas, with the midfielder having been linked with a move to Manchester United and Arsenal.
During his presentation as Barca’s new boss, Enrique remained coy on the future of the Spanish international and whether he is set for a move away from the Nou Camp.
“In principle, we have not taken any decisions like that because we still have time,” he told reporters.
“Some players are now focused on the World Cup finals, which is their job, and how it should be.
“We need to assess and evaluate now and when the time is right we will go into that and we will talk about everything.”
Enrique also remained tight-lipped regarding Xavi’s immediate future at Barcelona, with the midfielder linked with a move to the MLS.
“He is a friend and a former team-mate,” he said.
“We will sit down and talk about what he wants and what we want.”
