Fly Emirates are stepping into the transfer saga involving Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas.

Barcelona are pressing to close a deal for Cesc, who was registered for the Champions League yesterday by Arsenal.

However, Milan media sources say Fly Emirates want AC Milan to make a serious move to trump Barca for the Spain international.

Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has flirted with the prospect of landing Cesc and now has the backing of major sponsors Fly Emirates, which also support Arsenal.

Emirates are desperate to keep Cesc 'in the family' with his image proving a winner for the airline.
