Florentino confident Real Madrid will beat Barcelona for Arsenal's Cesc

Arsenal have slapped a €45 million price-tag on Real Madrid target Cesc Fabregas. Marca says Cesc has told Gunners boss Arsene Wenger he wants to leave the club at the end of the season and he will be valued at €45 million by the club's board.

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is confident of trumping Barcelona for Cesc.

With Barca facing elections this year, Perez is convinced Arsenal will not be interested in negotiating with presidential candidates and would prefer to deal directly with Real.

Further strengthening Real's hand was Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood's outburst against Barca last week over the public pursuit of their club captain.
