Cesc Fabregas

Cesc Fabregas has moved quickly to kill any possible speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United, declaring he is happy at the Nou Camp.

United had reportedly been interested in Cesc earlier in the summer but the player said he would only move on if Barcelona made it clear they didn’t want him.

United turned their attention elsewhere, namely Cesc’s team mate Thiago Alcantara, but having missed out on the 22 year old over the weekend United reportedly lodged a £25m offer for Cesc yesterday.

But Barcelona are set to disappoint United yet again after Tito Vilanova said that the midfielder would not be leaving the Nou Camp:

“I know he has received offers from other teams.

“But Cesc has told me he wants to stay here. He has told me it is his dream to stay with Barcelona.”

“He doesn’t want to go to other teams for money reasons or playing time. He knows there is competition for places here, but his decision is to stay. I am relaxed about the situation.”

Since joining Barcelona in 2011, Cesc has struggled for playing time in his favoured position but with Xavi ageing and Thiago being sold, Cesc could be better suited biding his time.

    These transfer shenanigans always seem to work themselves out.

    Miss out on moura and hazard. Got van persie and kagawa.

    Its been happening for years.

    Miss out on shearer. Got solksjaer.

    Ride it out and see where it goes.

    Its not as if your going to stop supporting united due to transfer activity. And if it is then united dont want you

    Only the united fans place it that high. We are best in England but not the world. The order has really changed and we better stop been arrogant and accept the fact that things are no longer as they were. What is done to Rooney currently is part of the arrogance and its unfair. The lad serves us for 9. Year since the age of 18. He deserves some respect. I don’t believe he’s handed the request. Its just fergie trying to get at him. Fergie is not God. Players don’t really see all hype about us being the best in the world, evidence is they snub us without a second chance, period
