Real Madrid attacker Lucas Vazquez had Arsenal, Man Utd offers

Real Madrid attacker Lucas Vazquez resisted offers from Arsenal and Manchester United last summer, it has been revealed.

Cadena SER reports he rejected Manchester United, Arsenal and Bayern Munich in order to fight for his spot in the Spanish capital.

The 28-year-old has never been a nailed-on regular at Madrid and such is the case under Zinedine Zidane this season, with the diminutive Spaniard featuring from the start on just four of a possible 12 La Liga games so far this season.

Vazquez has spent almost his entire professional career doing so, except for a loan stint at Espanyol during the 14/15 season.

Valued at around 20 million euros (£17 million), his sale could provide funds for Zidane to dip into the transfer market.
