Report: Cesc Fabregas "Wants To Join Manchester United"

Denis Doyle

The Daily Mail today report that Cesc Fabregas has told his "friends in English football" that he would like to quit the Camp Nou in favour of a move to Manchester United

Manchester United may have seen two official bids rejected for Barcelona’s midfield star Cesc Fàbregas, but for whatever reason, head coach David Moyes is reluctant to move on, insisting that talks are "ongoing". In lieu of that revelation, the Daily Mail today report that Fàbregas actually wants "to quit Barcelona", and is said to be "keen" to link up with one of his former Arsenal teammates, Robin Van Persie.

Reportedly talking to "friends in English football" (evidently not including former teammate Aaron Ramsey), Fàbregas has admitted that he is interested in a move to Old Trafford, and is "attracted by the promise of regular football" – and given his paltry average of 48 appearances per season at Barcelona, it’s clear that he isn’t getting regular minutes at the Camp Nou...

Earlier in the week, Sky Sports' "transfer guru", Kaveh Solekhol stated that a transfer seemed "likely", as all that needed to be agreed was "personal terms", and a "transfer fee" – which ironically is all that stands in the way of Barcelona signing long-term target Thiago Silva. Or Cristiano Ronaldo.

Similarly, the Daily Mail report seems to suggest that Barcelona would likely accept an offer from Manchester United, provided that Cesc Fàbregas asked for a transfer – which in itself seems ludicrous. After letting Thiago Alcântara depart for Bayern Munich, Barcelona would certainly need to identify a world-class replacement for Cesc Fàbregas and then sign that player before even considering any further bid from United.

Still, it’s tough not to admire United’s persistence.
