It has emerged that Real Madrid are new favourites for Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas.
The Sun has reported that the Gunner are ready to reluctantly sell its club captain this summer.
It is said that Arsene Wenger will want £35m for a player who cost £500,000 from the Barcelona youth academy in 2003.
It is believed that the Spanish champions are reluctant to increase last year’s bid for a player who would not be an automatic starter.
However despite interest from Spanish rivals Real Madrid, Fabregas has set his heart on returning to his home club.
