Arsenal boss Wenger scoffs at Man City pursuit of Cesc

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has scoffed at reports that Manchester City want to buy Cesc Fabregas.

The prospect of City snaring his skipper was put to Wenger at his pre-match press conference and, predictably, the Frenchman gave it short shrift.

Indeed, Wenger pointed out that only three Arsenal players are technically available at the moment - the ones who have yet to agree a new deal at Emirates Stadium.

"That is their [City's] problem," Wenger told

"It's simple. If they want to buy a player from Arsenal Football Club, apart from Mikael Silvestre, William Gallas and Sol Campbell, [they cannot because] the players are all under contract.

"If they want to play with my players, they have to me."
