The Daily Mail have Manchester United fans sitting up and taking notice here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they note that the club could well land Cesc Fabregas after the player claimed that he wanted to join Manchester United.
Fabregas has been involved in one of the longest running transfer sagas of the summer and whilst it was first thought that the midfielder wanted to stay at the Camp Nou and fight for his place, it now seems that Fabregas would fancy a move to United and a link up with Robin Van Persie, who he knows very well from his time at Arsenal when they both played together rather well.
Now it seems that Fabregas would like to play under David Moyes and has told ‘friends’ that he wants to make the switch to Old Trafford – leaving his boyhood club Barcelona. Fabregas is not the only midfielder that United have tried to land this summer – Moyes suffered a huge blow when he saw Thiago Alcantara choose to make the switch to link up with Pep Guardiola at Bayern Munich after facing much the same problem as Fabregas – the difficulty of ousting Xavi and Andres Iniesta in the middle of the park!
Should he make the move to United this would not exactly go down well with Arsenal fans who of course had to see former star man RVP become a pivotal figure in the title race last season. Moyes may well have to up his bid for Fabregas however after seeing previous bids dismissed by the Catalan giants.
