Whilst Thiago may have opted to head to Bayern Munich, Manchester United aren’t finished with Barcelona.
It has emerged that Manchester United have made a move for former Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas according to sources of Sky Sports. United’s interest in Fabregas was confirmed earlier in the summer but any notion of a move was said to have been put to rest when the midfielder declared he didn’t see himself leaving Barcelona.
Having returned to Barcelona in 2011, Cesc has struggled to win over his home fans and is hoping to change the perception that his return has not been a successful one.
United’s bid is said to have 2 problems though, one being that Arsenal have first refusal on their former captain and the second being that United’s bid, thought to be £22.5m, is well below Barcelona’s valuation.
