Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere is part of a five man target list drawn up by Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho, according to The
The list was leaked to Spanish newspaper Marca, which is Madrid orientated, and the headline published was ‘Operation 2014’. All five players on the list are 20 or under and Madrid expect to have them all signed by 2014.
19 year old Wilshere pledged his entire career to the Gunners last week and is expected to rebuff any advances from Mourinho. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was said to be furious that Madrid are interested in his midfield maestro and is adamant that he will not lose more top players after the summer departures of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri.
The other four players on Madrid’s wishlist include Arsenal target Eden Hazard of Lille, Mario Goetze of Borussia Dortmund, Athletic Bilbao’s Iker Muniain and Rafinha Alcantara from Barcelona.
