Monaco star Cesc Fabregas has revealed that Xabi Alonso wanted to move to ?Arsenal desperately but the lack of interest from the Gunners meant that the Spaniard moved to ?Real Madrid.

“I was on the phone with Xabi the whole summer, he was dying to come, he was literally begging everyone to go to Arsenal,” Fabregas said, as per Goal.



According to Fabregas, the Basque star was “begging” to join the Londoners but the move didn’t end up happening and Alonso, subsequently, joined the Merengues in Spain.



He was made for Arsenal I think.”

Alonso is regarded as one of the best midfielders of his generation who went on to play for some of the best coaches of his era, including Jose Mourinho, Pep Guardiola, Vicente Del Bosque, Carlo Ancelotti, Rafa Benitez and Luis Aragones.

He could have had Arsene Wenger on that list as well if Arsenal  made the move to sign him.

“He really wanted to come, I did my best - I spoke to who I had to speak, I gave my opinion, I thought that he was a fantastic addition for us at that time.
