Reports from Spain claim Barcelona are willing to sell Manchester United target Cesc Fabregas
Spanish giants Barcelona might sell former Arsenal midfielder and Manchester United target Cesc Fabregas in the summer according to reports in Marca. The Spanish giants will undergo wholesale changes at the club after what has been a forgettable season for the Camp Nou outfit.
Luis Enrique has already been confirmed as the new manager and is set to take charge from the departing Tata Martino.
Barcelona president, Josep María Bartomeu has reportedly said that a mass exodus is set to follow and Sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta has a tough job on his hands of putting together a squad who would be capable of fighting for silver ware next season.
It is believed that Fabregas is one among the majority of players who will walk away from Camp Nou in the summer.

The report in Marca claims that Barcelona would let Fabregas go for €40m if they can find a suitable replacement for the 27 year old Spaniard. The Blaugrana have already targeted Juventus’ Paul Pogba as a potential summer signing. The young Frenchman is also on the wishlist of Real Madrid.
Fabregas failed to command up a regular starting spot in the Barcleona XI despite scoring 9 goals and grabbing 14 assists in 45 appearances this season. The former Arsenal midfielder will certainly have a talk with the new manager before deciding his future.
Manchester United were linked with the Spaniard last summer and the Red Devils might jump at the opportunity to snap up the midfielder in the coming transfer market.
