Chelsea have a policy whereby players over the age of 30 are only offered one-year contract extensions, but Fabregas insists that he is still feeling young and hopes to stay at Stamford Bridge for a long time to come.

"Would I like to renew? Yes, because it is a club that has always treated me well. I believe the fans have a lot of respect for me and I have a lot of respect for them. I have given my all for the club for the last three-and-a-half years," he told Standard Sport.

"This is a fantastic club for me and I have had a fantastic time here. Hopefully, another contract will happen. Time will tell. I know that people panic after players reaches 30 and stuff like that, but I don't believe in this. I feel well, I feel young in my mind. I train every day as hard as possible.

"I think in the last 48 games I have played in 47, and I only missed one because I was suspended against Tottenham in August. I always try to give my best. I will play at any moment, even when I'm sick or not 100%."

Former Arsenal star Fabregas has won two Premier League titles and one League Cup during his three years at Stamford Bridge.
