Arsenal Cesc Fabregas Acknowledges Real Madrid Interest But Refuses To Give Up On Barcelona

Midfielder happy in London, but underlines need for trophies

Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas has refused to rule out completing his "dream" move to Barcelona in the future, and also revealed previous interest from Real Madrid.

Fabregas, 23, seemed poised to switch to the Nou Camp in the summer after Barca led a very public chase for his signature. Manager Arsene Wenger stood firm, however, and the club's hierarchy rejected two substantial bids to leave Fabregas in north London.

Speaking to, the Spain World Cup 2010 winner hinted that, while happy at the Emirates, he would continue to chase a transfer back to his native Catalonia.

"My answer in that moment was Barcelona and I still think that I wasn't wrong because it is a dream I have had since I was a child," Fabregas said

The story is too old to be commented.
