Cesc rejects Real switch talk

Monday, July 28, 2008

Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fàbregas has hinted he is keen on a move to Real Madrid, but revealed that he will have at least one more season with the Gunners.

Reports in Spain suggest Real president Ramón Calderón has prepared a big money offer for 21-year-old after struggling to land Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United.

But while flattered to have been linked with the Spanish giants, he insists he wants to stay at the Emirates Stadium for the moment.

"I didn’t say ‘No’ to Ramón Calderón," Fàbregas told Spanish sports daily Marca. "I told him that right now it’s not the moment to join Real Madrid.

"The fact that Real Madrid - one of the greatest teams in history - want you is important."

Fàbregas, a product of Real’s biggest rivals Barcelona’s Academy La Masia, is already Arsenal’s most influential player at age of 21.

He enjoyed a great summer success as he helped his country end their 44-year wait for a trophy by winning the Euro 2008, and now wants to repeat that success domestically.

Cesc has six years remaining on his current contract with the Gunners, but he has hinted that another season without a trophy could see him leave the Emirates.

Arsenal have now gone through three seasons without securing a single trophy, a fact that has already seen the likes of Thierry Henry and Alexsander Hleb move on from north London.
