  Real linked with 18m Vieira bid
Updated 03 August 2004, 13.43
Real Madrid are reported to have bid for Patrick Vieira
Real Madrid and Arsenal are both keeping quiet about a reported transfer bid for midfield star Patrick Vieira.

A Spanish newspaper has reported that Real have offered Arsenal around 18m for their captain.

But a spokesman for the Gunners said: "It is the club's policy that we do not comment until as and when a player signs or leaves the club."

And a Real representative said: "We have no information available concerning Patrick Vieira and Real.

"We cannot say if there has been a bid."

The Spanish newspaper also said that the two clubs were talking about the deal and added that "the transfer talks are in the final stages".

Arsenal don't want to sell Vieira, but Real Madrid have a history of managing to bring players they want to the club.

Real didn't win a trophy last season and were criticised for selling defensive midfielder Claude Makelele without buying a replacement.

Now it seems they have set their sights on Vieira filling that hole in the team.
