Cesc Fabregas did not play a single minute in Chelsea's Premier League opener, and now the Spanish midfielder told Real Madrid president Florentino Perez that he is willing to play for Los Blancos, according to a report from Sport.

While it's hard to see Sport having inside access to Real Madrid sources, they might know Fabregas from his time with FC Barcelona, so the player's interest in joining the club could be real.

Are Real Madrid interested, though? Zidane and his coaching staff wanted to add a midfielder to the roster and a committed Cesc Fabregas is a very intriguing player and one that could make a big impact. However, he seems to be on his decline even though he is still 29 years old. Chelsea paid €33 million for the midfielder, so he would not be a very expensive signing for Madrid, but one that could be problematic down the road if the player is not engaged.

Madrid will most likely stay put this transfer window.

Likelihood: 2/10
