Manchester United target Cesc Fabregas is set to leave Barcelona
According to reports in Sky Sports, Manchester United target and former Arsenal midfielder is set to leave Barcelona in the summer. It is believed that the Catalan club are willing to sell the 27-year-old who does not feature in their plans for the coming campaign.
According to the story in Sky, a £30m release clause is written in Fabregas’ target which Manchester United are more than willing to trigger.

Arsenal were also thought to be interested in bringing back their former midfielder. Reports in Telegraph claim that Arsenal will have the first option to bring back Fabregas at the Emirates, the player who spent eight years with the Gunners. The Spaniard is currently on £100,000 a week wages at the Camp Nou outfit but it is his price tag that might prevent Arsene Wenger from signing their former fan favourite.
Manchester United are in dire need of a world class midfielder who can drive the team in the middle of the park and have been linked with Fabregas since last summer. But for Arsenal fans it would be a bitter pill to swallow if Fabregas joins the Red Devils at Old Trafford in the summer.
