Manchester United Confirm Second Bid For Cesc Fabregas

cesc fabregas4 Manchester United Confirm Second Bid For Cesc Fabregas

Manchester United manager David Moyes has confirmed that the club has made a second bid to try to sign Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona.

A reported £25million bid for the 26-year-old midfielder was made last week. And on Saturday, we reported that Manchester United had put in a £30million bid for Fabregas plus add-ons.

Today, Moyes offered more information regarding the second bid and how Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward is working the deal:

“As I understand it, Ed had a response. We have made a second offer but Ed is dealing with it rather than me.

“I think a point does come. But when you are interested in good players you want to give it every opportunity to materialize. I will hope things will continue to move forward.

“At this moment I can only tell you Ed Woodward is working hard to try to make the deals happen. We hope some of them will fall into place shortly.”

United continue to chase the player despite repeated statements from Barcelona that the player is not for sale and is not interested in leaving.
