Spain’s Cesc Fabregas, who has shone with Arsenal in the Champions League, is a target for Real Madrid for the 2008-2009 season, according to AS.
Real president Ramon Calderon spoke to the newspaper after following Spain’s 3-1 defeat of Denmark in a Euro 2008 qualifier.
“Cesc is one of the best,” Calderon said.
AS said the Real manager Bernd Schuster is aware of Calderon’s interest in the midfielder for next season.
Prior to his election by Real’s board last year, Calderon promised to get Fabregas, Arjen Robben and Kaka for the club. The Dutchman was bought from Chelsea last summer for €35m, but Milan have repeatedly insisted that theyuy have no intenion of selling.
Fabregas, 20, who spent his early career at Barcelona, has already scored four goals in eight matches for Arsenal in the Premiership, and three goals in the Champions League.
