You would think that the top men at one of the worlds most famous football clubs would get the message when a player, his manager and his bosses all deny that a player will be joining them.
But no, not Real Madrid. A giant club they are, a rich club they are, but get the message they do not. (no, it's not Yoda writing this, I just have a thing about him at the moment).
On countless occasions Fabregas has said he is happy at Arsenal, that he wishes to stay at Arsenal and that one day he will return to Spain - to play for his boyhood club Barcelona. His manager, who tied Cesc down to a record 7 year contract, has said that he is going nowhere and even members of the Arsenal board have said that Arsenal are not willing to do business with Real Madrid. But still Real Madrid do not get it.
That's right folks, Real Madrid supremo Ramon Calderon says that he has a 3 year masterplan to take two of football's biggest stars, and Arjen Robben (you liked that, didn't you?, to Spain.
Althouh to his credit, he isn't as blatant about it as those who have held his position before him.
Calderon told La Razon: 'There's a chance that they will all be here by the end of my third year in office.'
He was then asked if they would arrive over three summers to which he replied: 'Well yes, I think so. I don't want to create any false expectations.'
Well I'm afraid I have just two words for you Mr Calderon - FU*K OFF!
