The transfer situation surrounding Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas is getting interesting with each passing day. After there were rumours that Arsenal were in pole position to resign their former fan favourite, there are reports in Spain that Manchester United are set to bid €37m to secure the services of the 27 year old.

The story which features in Sport claims that new Manchester United manager has advised the Red Devils to bid £ 30 million, nearly €37 m for the former Arsenal star. The story is according with our reports from yesterday, where we relayed that Sky Sports have claimed that the Old Trafford outfit would do everything possible to snap up Fabregas in the summer.

However there a clause in Fabregas’ contract which states that Arsenal would have first refusal for the player and if the London club matches United’s bid for the midfielder, a sensational return to the Emirates would be possible.

The Gunners’ manager Arsene Wenger had a soft spot for his former captain, but it would be interesting to see if the Frenchman brings in another midfielder given his plethora of options in the middle of the park.  Former Arsenbal Legend Ray Parlour had also earlier advised Wenger against bringing the Spaniard to the Emirates.  

Manchester United though have been relentless in their pursuit for Fabregas, whose career now looks set to be away from Camp Nou after the Catalan club’s President Josep Maria Bartomeu had earlier made it clear that there will be wholesale changes at Camp Nou in the summer.

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo however reports that Arsenal aren’t interested in him reportedly and neither are Man United, who have set different transfer targets this season with Louis van Gaal. Manchester City could emerge as the most likely destination in case he does return to the Premier League

Can the Red Devils finally lay their hands on the player they have been seeking since last summer or will Wenger bring back yet another midfielder to Arsenal? Surely time will have an apt answer.

  1. Man u most sign stroothman,reus,kroos,dimaria,mart hormar,shaw,fabrigas,iniesta and let flecher chicharito evra fellaini clevali young valencia shod live

  2. We do not need Fab, but he is a top class player and would leave guys like Santi warming the bench. The spanish outfit no doubt still owe Arsenal some Euro’s on both the Fabregass and the Song deals – this would therefor not take too much from the TFR kitty. It would merely settle Barca’s debt with us.
    Can fab be our Messi?

  3. For the fact that arsenal have an of first refusal on cesc, Wenger should do everything possible to bring cesc back. Reemember fans called him fabry-pass please Weger do not allow cesc to join any premier league side apart from Arsenal. It will be good to see that Arsenal have the best midfield in the league

  4. United should go for him

  5. FABREGAS – What’s all these complications? Do UTD need this player? If yes, do UTD have offered to Barcelona the buy-out clause fee? If not UTD have been going playing around the bush to let ManCity take this player?
    Money is the strongest weapon; come UTD go all-out for this midfielder asap b4 it will be too late, thanking God that Arsenal do not seem to be wanting the player back to Emirates.

  6. Not only first option for Arsenal but buy back fee already set in stone in his Barcelona contract by Arsenal and they do not have to match rival bids.

  7. Fabregas will fit in well at United..Bring this guy and forget about Toni Kroos

  8. Woodward needs to get his finger out and start getting some players in

  9. if cesc can swallow his pride and cm back to arsenal wenger shld do all things possible to bring him back to emirates. all those saying we av enough in d midfield are ignoramus, it will add to squad depth, they will av fewer games nd wenger will b able to cope with injuries, in addition to him arsenal need a central midfielder wit steel, one right back, one central defender, two center forwards and pacy left winger who also double as a good crosser and a dribbler

  10. Van Gaal to sing good players 4 man utd, if not d team will relegate back from champion league. so he need to sing 1.Toni Kroos 2.Fabrages 3.Luke Shaw and two central defender.
