Speaking to Foot Mercato, Cesc Fabregas has admitted Barcelona brass asked him to help lure Aurelien Tchouameni to the Camp Nou.

"Yes, it’s true that I talked about Aurelien with Barca. They wanted to start preparing for the succession of Sergio Busquets and he was the perfect player for me," the former Barca midfielder said.

"But it was at a time when Barca were short of money, and I believe they couldn’t offer more than €40million. He has since signed at Real, he is a regular there and has become essential to the French team. For me, Aurelien has no limits!"
