Real Madrid offered Arsenal £25 million for Cesc Fabregas, it has been revealed.

DiarioSport says during Real president Ramon Calderon's incredible spending last summer, he was willing to pay the Gunners £25 million for the Spain international.

However, Cesc's family was hugely influential in the 20 year-old rejecting the move. If he is to return to Spain in the future, it will only be to former club Barcelona.
