Premier League champions Manchester United have been relentless in their pursuit of Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas and despite already having two bids rejected by the club who insist he is not for sale, will carry on their attempts to tempt the former Arsenal man to England well into this week.
According to several English newspapers, Fabregas is eager to link up with David Moyes and his squad by the time the summer transfer window slams shut on the 2nd of September to have another crack at the Premier League and United believe his silence amid speculation of an imminent transfer is something that plays things right into their hands.
New Barcelona manager was quizzed regarding the future of Fabregas in his first press conference after being unveiled as the boss where he stated that Manchester United want the player and if the club has already rejected two offers for the player, he will reject a third offer if it comes in and the player will be with the club come the new season.
United manager Moyes, however, is not losing sleep about the club’s pursuit of a player he has long admired and wanted to bring to Everton on loan during his stint at Arsenal and mentioned that they are weighing up their options and will consider what to do. It is being believed United, who have already had two bids of £ 25 million and £ 31 million are ready to offer an improved £ 36 million bid for the player who left for his boyhood club from fierce rivals Arsenal just a couple of seasons back.
And if Manchester United is unsuccessful in their bid to bring Cesc back to England, Moyes will turn to his former Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini as a backup option for the midfield role.
