The Daily Star have a sensational claim for us here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they think that former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas is still on the radar of Manchester United this summer.
The Barcelona midfielder has been persistently linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer and even a return to the Emriates Stadium looked to be an option at one point.
Then came the denial from Cesc himself who claimed that he would prefer to remain at Barcelona and indeed the stunning performance by Thiago Alcantara at the European Under-21 Championships, meaning that interest turned to the young Barcelona player instead.
Ironically it is the same issue that both Thiago and Cesc have – the inability to break the midfield stronghold of Xavi and Andres Iniesta at the Camp Nou. Now David Moyes is planning a sensational move that would see both players anchor the heart of his side and is willing to pay big money to make sure that happens this summer.
Both players would ideally like to stay at the Camp Nou but Thiago especially is at the stage in his career when playing week in, week out is a must and that would certainly be a more realistic option at Old Trafford.
Is there life in the Thiago to United rumours? Are the Fabregas to United rumours still drunk? Rate this rumour below.
