Real Madrid to offer € 60 million for Cesc Fabregas

Some newspapers in Spain assure that the powerful Real Madrid has a stunning offer of € 60 million to sign up Cesc Fabregas. They consider that his talent would be the perfect complement for Xabi Alonso.

The Arsenal 23-year-old captain is the main target of president Florentino Perez, and the most difficult part could be to convince Arsenal about selling their captain and most important footballer.

The secret card would be French Striker Karim Benzema. According to some sources in Real Madrid, Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger wants this player in his squad, and that is an important opportunity to begin negotiations.


Spain beat Colombia 1-0

Finally, Spain got their first post-worldcup victory against Colombia. The match played at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium was really tough for Del Bosque's squad, but David Silva finally netted for a 1-0 win.

As we know Cesc Fabregas was sick and could not be part of this match, but the Spanish midfield was strong enough to dominate a talented Colombian squad.

This victory is a relief for millions of fans that could not see another victory of Spain after the 1-0 win over the Netherlands in the 2010 World Cup Final.


Cesc likely to play against Colombia in next week's friendly match

Spanish Coach Vicente del Bosque announced his squad to use against Colombia on Wednesday. The complete Spanish rooster for this game includes Casillas, Valdes, Reina (Goalkeepers) Albiol, Capdevila, Arbeloa, Marchena, Piqué and Sergio Ramos (defenders), Santi Cazorla, Sergio Busquets, Cesc Fábregas, Xabi Alonso, Xavi Hernández and the popular Andrés Iniesta (midfielders), Silva, Llorente, Navas, Pedro, Torres and Villa (Strikers).

The coach suggested that most players will have the chance to play against the South American team. As we know, FIFA allows only 6 substitutions in friendly games, but Cesc Fabregas is having a very good season at Arsenal and is very likely to be part of the starting team.

Spain will miss Carles Puyol. The strong defender is suffering physical problems and cannot be part of the team.

The match, which will take place at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, is the first one for the World Champions in 2011.
