The midfielder admitted he had made such a proposal to his former team, which was rejected due to monetary constraints.

Cesc Fabregas still has some football left in his boots. At the age of 35, the midfielder from Arenys has signed for Como in the Italian second division with the desire to feel like a footballer again, after a very difficult year in the ranks of Monaco.

In an interview with Cadena Cope, the former Barça player reviewed his current situation and gave his opinion on other contemporary names in the news in football. Additionally, he revealed a curious fact regarding his former teammate in the principality, Aurélien Tchouaméní, who has signed for Real Madrid for 80 million euros.

Fàbregas has confessed that he contacted Barça to recommend signing the French midfielder. "I know Tchouaméni very well. I spoke to people at Barça about signing him. I thought he was a great player for the future, but financially he couldn't be signed. I gave my opinion to another former team and in the end, he went to the rival club. You have to take advantage of market opportunities," explained the midfielder.

Cesc also had good words for his friend and former teammate at Barça, Leo Messi, who he wishes could return to the Barça squad after his departure last summer to Paris Saint Germain. "As a Barcelonista I hope and wish that Messi returns to Barcelona. He has a year left in Paris. I would be delighted. It's a dream that the club and all the fans have. But football can be very capricious. I speak to you as a fan," he said.
