Cesc Fabregas

’s pursuit of may be over after ’s new manager Gerardo┬áMartino said he would reject any advances for the player.

said ’s attempts to sign Cesc are on going, but having had a number of bids rejected it was believed that United signing Cesc was a lost cause.

Yesterday night reports emerged that Cesc would be open to a move to United, linking up with former team mate , but Martino’s comments today make a deal between the two clubs seem highly unlikely.

Barcelona had said that they would wait to appoint a new manager before making any decision on Cesc and when the Argentine manager was asked about the player he simply replied:

want Cesc? If the club rejected two offers, I will reject it a third time. Cesc will be here.”

These comments seem to put an end to the on going saga, but with the number of twists and turns we have seen so far I believe there is still more to come.
