Today in the Football Transfer Tavern, the Daily Mail note that Manchester United boss David Moyes is prepared to make a club record final bid for Cesc Fabregas.
Moyes is set to make the move despite the Spanish international claiming he would be happy to remain aty Barcelona this summer.
The midfielder is growing increasingly worried over his place in the starting line up and knows that missing the season opener against Levante with injury has not helped his cause.
Since his move back to the Catalan side from Arsenal, Cesc has struggled to break the hold of Xavi and Andres Iniesta in the middle of the park. All three managers the former Gunners captain has played under at the Camp Nou prefer the established duo with new manager Gerardo Martino being no exception.
Fabregas is fully aware that with the World Cup fast approaching, first team football is more essential than ever and given the likes of Thiago Alcantara and Juan Mata will be getting that at their clubs, Fabregas could well slip even further down the pecking order internationally.
Moyes is planning on watching the situation closely and should Cesc fail to play when he has recovered from the an ankle niggle, he will swoop in and make a final bid of £32 million which is of course a club record and slightly more that the first couple of bids that the Manchester United manager saw turned down.
Given Moyes has so far failed to make any significant signings in the transfer window, he will be hoping to land Fabregas before the window closes.
Should Manchester United simply give up this chase or will £32 million make Barcelona take notice? Let us know your thoughts below.
