A leaked Real Madrid document which listed the club’s top transfer targets has revealed Arsenal and England star Jack Wilshere as a potential signing.
The 19 year old, who is contracted to Arsenal until 2015 and recently pledged his future to the Gunners was named alongside emerging talents Eden Hazard of Lille, Borussia Dortmund’s Mario Gotze, Barcelona’s Rafinha Alcantara and Iker Muniain of Athletic Bilbao.
Spanish newspaper Marca revealed the footballing equivalent of a shopping list under the headline ‘Operation Madrid 2014’, with Jose Mourinho set to look to the future as he bids to breaks Barcelona’s Spanish dominance.
The report revealed that Real’s technical team plan to save the La Liga stars money today by forking out upwards of £30 million now rather the £50 million when they are fully developed stars.
However the leak of the document by Marca which has close connections with Madrid, is being questioned by so who view this as the club’s first attempt to turn the Wilshire and the rest of the famous five.
Barcelona waged a similar paper driven war on Arsenal for the services of Cesc Fabregas, a battle they eventually when they signed the player in a £30 million deal in teh summer and now Arsene Wenger could be about to face a similar campaign.
