Real Madrid Confirm Cesc Fabregas Is No.1 Transfer Target

The Sun reports that Madrid have entered the race to sign Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas. Just hours after Gunners boss Arsene Wenger confirmed there had been no inquiries for the Spaniard, Real director Jose Angel Sanchez contacted Arsenal regarding his availability.

Madrid are determined to get one up on their rivals and are set to make a move for the former Barca trainee, a Real source said:

“The president Florentino Perez has identified Fabregas as the one signing above all others to hurt Barcelona.

“He believes signing Fabregas would be a real statement of intent for next season. He will do whatever is needed to put the club back above Barca.”

Madrid chief Perez has sanctioned a £100m war chest for Mourinho this summer with Fabregas and Atletico Madrid striker Sergio Aguero top off their wish list.

Manchester City are believed to be interested in the 24-year old but Arsenal will not allow their prized asset to leave for another English club.
