Manchester City To Battle Barcelona & Real Madrid For Arsenal’s Cesc Fabregas

Fabregas Manchester City have reportedly entered the race to sign Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

However, the wealthy Premier League side will face stiff competition for the player’s signature from Spanish giants Real Madrid and especially Barcelona, according to Spanish newspaper AS.

Speculation has continued to mount over the player’s future in the last year, even though he has repeatedly stated his willingness to stay in north London.

Barcelona are apparently confident that the Catalan playmaker will return ‘home’, and may even mount a bid in January. Real Madrid  are also believed to be hovering with intent.

However, City’s enormous spending power has already brought results this year, with Emmanuel Adebayor and Kolo Toure moving north from the Emirates in the summer.

Fabregas came through the ranks at Barcelona before joining the Gunners as a 16-year-old, so the Catalan giants would surely be the favourites to sign Fabregas.
