Once again murmurings of a huge bid to capture Arsenal’s most prized possession, sure to be given short shrift from Wenger!
Real Madrid will step up their pursuit of Arsenal’s Cesc Fabregas after conceding defeat in the battle to sign Cristiano Ronaldo.
Manchester United’s insistence they will not sell their star winger has finally been accepted by the Spanish giants.
Real chiefs have run out of patience with United’s stance and Ronaldo’s refusal to ask for a transfer, so have made former Barcelona trainee Fabregas their new No 1 target.
The Gunners have had had to fight off repeated attempts by Barcelona to lure Fabregas back to Spain. He was one of the stars of the national team that won the Euro 2008 finals and most Spaniards want to see him back playing in his homeland. (News of the World)
Quite why Real Madrid are bothering I am not sure, but having been told to get lost by Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, a manager who in turn appears to have been told to get lost by Spurs, now Calderon has set his sights on midfield maestro Fabregas and there are just so many reasons he should just not bother!
1) He is not Hleb and therefore won’t go chasing the cash
2) He clearly loves the club and wouldn’t dream of just upping sticks and leaving
3) As a former Barcelona man he probably doesn’t have much of a love for their most hated rivals!
Do Arsenal fans believe that Fabregas could see out his career at the Emirates?
