Real Madrid have reportedly stepped up their pursuit of Arsenal attacker Jose Antonio Reyes. The Spain international appears to be a prime summer target for Real, who look poised to endure a second successive season without a major trophy. Reyes has been pinpointed as a player who could help to bring silverware back to El Santiago Bernabeu and rumours claim Real have been in contact with The Gunners. The club's sporting director Emilio Butragueno is purported to have contacted Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein over the weekend.
"Arsenal's fans have given me and the rest of the team fantastic support this season and I want to thank them for that," said Reyes.
"It's very important for me to play well for them in the cup final, and in the future, to repay that support.
"I have still enjoyed my first season in The Premiership.
"I have learned a lot about my own game and I now understand a different style of football as well as a whole new culture.
"Some people are saying that this might be my last match for Arsenal but I don't expect that to be the case.
"I have a contract with Arsenal so the club are the only people who can decide my future."
