Cesc Fabregas has shunned overtures from Real Madrid and wants to stay at Arsenal, according to his agent.

“We have one very good offer from Madrid but Cesc and Arsenal prefer he plays in London,” Joseba Diaz told BBC Radio Five Live.

“Cesc prefers playing at Arsenal next season and I think a lot of seasons.”

Arsenal have also firmly denied that Fabregas could leave the club.

Manager Arsene Wenger, who is usually reluctant to comment on transfer speculation, said: “I’d like to make it clear that Cesc Fabregas is not for sale and we will not be listening to any offers.

“He represents the future of Arsenal and we are looking forward to him being a major part of our plans.”
