Manchester City and Arsenal have been dealt a blow to their summer transfer plans as one target of both clubs has revealed he would much rather join Real Madrid.

Sevilla midfielder Geoffrey Kondogbia is interesting both Roberto Mancini and Arsene Wenger, according to talkSPORT.

Arsenal manager Wenger recently admitted an admiration for the 20-year-old defensive midfielder and was reportedly ready to bid.

This report claims Manchester City had been confident of landing Kondogbia for somewhere in the region of £7million, but interest from Arsenal and Real Madrid could drive the price up.

The France Under-20 international has made his feelings clear regarding what he wants for his future and it most certainly isn’t a switch to either Emirates Stadium or the Etihad Stadium.

“It is always a pleasure to know people are interested in you," he said in an interview with Telefoot.

“Madrid? That makes me dream but it is only a rumour for now. I want to play in the Champions League. My preference? Since childhood, Real Madrid.”

Kondogbia would fit the bill for Arsenal if reports that Wenger is looking for a specialist defensive midfielder are accurate.

Meanwhile, Manchester City have missed the presence of Nigel de Jong in front of the back four since he moved to AC Milan last summer.
