ARSENAL captain Cesc Fabregas has revealed a recent conversation with Arsene Wenger was 'one of the most difficult moments' of his life, as the midfielder tries to choose between a return to Barcelona or to remain in north London.

The Catalan giants have made no secret of their wish to take Fabregas back to the Nou Camp, where he was brought through the youth ranks. And Arsenal have even been forced to reject a £29million offer for their skipper.

However, Fabregas remains torn between a return home and his loyalties to Arsenal and Wenger, who he described as 'a second father'.

“I'm a Barca fan, I'm a socio, as is my grandfather, my uncle, my cousin... I have felt the colours from a young age,” he told DIR Emotions magazine.

“However, I'm the captain of Arsenal, I'm a Gunner, and I have become a player there and matured as a person.”

Fabregas revealed he had held talks with Wenger in London. “He is a second father for me, the most important person in my life after my father. He has behaved really well with me and taken me in like a son. I am part of his family.

“He doesn't want me to leave. And in my last conversation with him in London, it was one of the most difficult moments I have experienced. I ended up very upset.”
