United have been heavily linked with the former Arsenal midfielder this summer, but before this interest could be confirmed Cesc ruled himself out of a move away from the Nou Camp.
But according to Irwin, who works as an ambassador for the club, United will not be deterred and will continue their pursuit of the Barcelona player as he is being quoted by the Sunday World:
“Cesc Fabregas has zoomed up Manchester United’s transfer target list to the top position and the champions are going to move heaven and earth to get him.
“The Barcelona star wants out of the Nou Camp and United want him badly, so the deal should be done easily enough. Fabregas is just the sort of all-action midfield player United need if they are to make a run at next season’s Champions League.
“Cesc won’t be short of offers for I believe this is going to be a transfer season where eye-boggling amounts of money will be spent.”
