United preparing mega offer for Fabregas

It usually happens once or twice a year, especially in the summer when there’s not much action going on. We are of course talking about transfer rumours. There are many rumours over the course of the year but the summer transfer window is especially hot as teams look ahead to the new season, make adjustments, sell players and lastly, buy new ones.

This year is no exception and the Spanish League has two big name transfers this summer, 3 if we include Neymar into the mix. The two we are talking about at the moment is the Gareth Bale story and the stance of tough chairman Daniel Levy, and the mega drawn out case of Barca’s own Cesc Fabregás. Barca’s Xavi said in a press conference earlier that he is mystified by Bale’s price tag and that he hasn’t seen him play a full game – strange.

Focusing on Fabregás, Manchester United, with their executive Ed Woodward at the helm, is busy preparing, according to the “Daily Express” a mega offer for the signature of Cesc Fabregas.

Manchester United manager David Moyes, who has seen Thiago Alcantara and Leighton Baines slip through the net, would make a final push for the Catalan midfielder, making it a record deal in the history of the English club, surpassing the €35 million paid to Tottenham in 2008 for the signing of Bulgarian Dimitar Berbatov, that ends up bringing Cesc Fabregás to Old Trafford.

Despite the insistence of the English club, Barcelona said they have no intention of selling the Catalan player and this was made public by sports vice president Josep Maria Bartomeu, who said “whatever bid comes in for Cesc, he won’t be sold”.

According to the same newspaper, Manchester United are readying a £26m bid for 27 year-old Juventus star Claudio Marchisio who just happens to be a midfielder like Cesc.
