According to various reputable sources including Sky Sports News. United have launched an audacious bid to bring Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas back to England, in a deal worth somewhere around £30million. The 26-year old made over 40 appearances for Barca last term, completing 90 minutes just 19 times.
After missing out on Thiago, it fills United fans with confidence knowing that we’re still going in for the best players. But you do have to wonder whether Fabregas will want to leave his boyhood club after just two seasons at the Camp Nou. I think the only way we’ll land him is if Barca accept our bid, forcing him of the Catalan club due to him thinking he isn’t a valued player there.
The 26-year old is in his prime and he’d definitely add something to our midfield. His creativity is what we’ve been lacking over recent seasons. Will anything materialise? We’ll just have to see.
