Arsenal skipper Cesc Fabregas has rejected fresh interest from Real Madrid. Sport says sources close to Florentino Perez have confirmed that Cesc was on his shopping list as he prepares to challenge for the Real Madrid presidency this summer.

However, Cesc has since been dropped by Perez's people as the midfielder has made it clear he will only return to Spain to join former club, Barcelona.

And Sandro Rosell, the former Barca vice-president, has Cesc on his agenda ahead of next year's elections.
