Interest in Arsenal captain denied.
An official at Real Madrid has denied that the club had an offer rejected for Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas according to French sports paper, L'Equipe.

It had been suggested that Los Merengues were looking to beat rivals Barcelona to the signature of the playmaker, who has been chased publicly by the Catalan giants.

The offer was reported to be in the region of €60m, with French striker Karim Benzema as a possible makeweight in the deal, but the anonymous club official rubbished such claims.

"At no time have we offered anything to Arsenal," ensures the source. "I can therefore confirm that Fabregas will not come to Real, and Benzema will not be leaving."

Fabregas has stated on several occasions that he is happy at Arsenal, but also that if he were to leave, it would only be for Barcelona, where he learned his trade in the famed La Masia academy.
