Real Madrid have denied reports claiming they have lodged a bid for Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas.
Fabregas, who was the subject of bids from former club Barcelona in the summer, is now being linked with a move to Real.
Reports in England and Spain suggest that Real were ready to make a €65million move for the Arsenal midfielder.
But Madrid general manager Jorge Valdanohas confirmed that they have made no bid or approach for the 23-year-old.
“We never made an offer for him (Fabregas) and we haven’t spoken with Arsenal either,” Valdano said.
“We have a good relationship with Arsenal and we don’t want any misunderstanding.”
