Manchester United Make Shock Move For Former Arsenal Captain Cesc Fabregas: The Daily EPL

cesc fabregas Manchester United Make Shock Move For Former Arsenal Captain Cesc Fabregas: The Daily EPL

Manchester United are prepared to make a huge signal of intent by signing Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas as David Moyes’s first new player of the season, according to the Evening Standard newspaper.

United have reportedly been in contact with Barcelona regarding the fee for Fabregas. The Spanish midfielder joined Barcelona two years ago for £35 million, but Barcelona still owe Arsenal £5 million, and want to recoup at least £20 million for the talented former Arsenal captain.

It’s been reported that Arsenal put a clause in Fabregas’s contract when they sold him that the Gunners would have the first option to buy him back.

Manchester United see Fabregas as an ideal option to strengthen their midfield especially given the retirement of Paul Scholes.

What’s your opinion about Fabregas, and whether he would be a good fit at United where he would team up with former Arsenal footballer Robin van Persie? Share your opinions in the comments section below.
