Manchester United & Arsenal in £40m battle

fabregas.jpgThe Sun have a sensational story for us here in the Football Transfer Tavern as it is claimed that Arsenal are set to join Manchester United in a £40 million battle for Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas.

The player has long been linked with the exit at the Camp Nou and finally it seems that his former club are set to become serious about bringing the midfielder back home to the Emirates Stadium.

One stumbling block for Arsenal is in the shape of the Red Devils who are also keen to bring the player back to England and with David Moyes viewing Fabregas as the perfect player to solve his central midfield issues, and it seems a bidding war is set to commence.

After failing to break into the Barcelona first team on a consistent basis and becoming increasingly disillusioned with life under Tito Vilanova, the player is willing to look for a move and would be more than keen to discuss his options with both United who of course are defending champions and also Arsenal who he still holds a soft spot for.

Will Cesc stay in Spain or will either Arsenal or Manchester United prise him away? Rate this rumour below.
