Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has confirmed they have first refusal on Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

Arsenal have a first-option buy-back on Fabregas, who was the subject of a £26million bid from Manchester United earlier this month, at a fixed price of £25million.

Wenger said: "We have the clause in the contract so we would be on alert. At the moment, Fabregas has decided to stay one more year at Barcelona.

"Unless he has changed his mind, I don't know but that's what I've been told."
