Arsenal's Cesc admits summer talks with Real Madrid chiefs

Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas admits he held talks with Real Madrid during the summer.

Cesc told Spanish radio he spoke with Real president Ramon Calderon and his No2 Pedja Mijatovic in July: "We were talking for awhile and it went very well. They seem to me two very good and very sincere people. The truth is that I will always thank them for their interest. We talked over many things, but in the end I chose not to leave Arsenal.

"We'll see what happens in the future, but for now I am 100 per cent happy with the decision that I took."

Cesc added: "I know you only get certain opportunities in life. But I am young and I know if I continue working hard and have good luck with injuries then these opportunities can come round again.

"I chose to stay (with Arsenal) and the truth is I will live with this decision, that I made with my family, until I die.
