Arsene Wenger remains uninterested in what he calls ‘noise’ that has consistently and relentlessly emanated out of Camp Nou over the last 12 months, preferring instead to concentrate on only things that he can influence.

Barcelona, it’s staff and it’s players have acted quite disgracefully in an attempt to drive a wedge between Arsenal and Cesc Fabregas and cheapen the deal somewhat, however the board have shown an impressive resolve in the interest of keeping the Spaniard, so much so that the ‘noise’ we’re hearing now is Spanish sobs about how the big nasty men in London won’t even talk to them.

Wenger however refuses to be worried, insisting the noise, is just that and he’s more than happy with Cesc at Arsenal.

‘It is only noise,’ said Wenger ‘In our job we have to deal with what we can master. What we cannot influence is not to worry about.

‘We have learned about that and I believe that in a big club you have to live with those kind of noises without being disturbed.

“I am very happy with Cesc and we are all very happy at the Club with Cesc. He is a very important player for us, he is our captain and we have worked very hard [for him] to be the future of our team and that is why we are always adamant about [not] letting him go.’
