Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has resumed hostilities with Arsene Wenger by aiming a double-dig at Arsenal.
The Special One claimed Cesc Fabregas was never interested in a move back to the Emirates.
The Blues boss swooped to sign Fabregas last month on a five-year deal after Wenger chose not to exercise a buyback clause in the 27-year-old Spain international’s Barcelona contract.
However, Mourinho insisted Fabregas was always up for a move across London and agreed to it after just a brief conversation between them.
As quoted on the Daily Mirror website, he said: “I spoke with him 20 minutes.
“I think he really wanted to come to us.
“As you know Arsenal had an option to interfere. But I think he was not open for that, I think he was very much in our direction so it was an easy job for me.”
