Fabregas a massive United fan?

Back in 2009 when Cesc Fabregas was captain at Arsenal, he admitted to being a huge admirer of Manchester United in preparation of a Champions League semi-final.

Earlier today United tabled a bid for the Barcelona midfielder, who we believe is settled in Catalonia following the birth of his first child. However that may change if the Spanish giants accept our offer in agreement to sell.

Speaking to the News of the World back in 2009, Fabregas revealed the amount of respect he has for Manchester United.

“I’m a massive Man United fan,” he explained.

“I have no problem saying United are one of the best clubs in the world – even though I want to beat them.

“They are the best side in the world at the moment – a top, top side and we respect them a lot.”

Times have changed and we’re no longer the best side in the world. When Fabregas made that comment United were European champions which is no longer the case, but I’m sure his respect remains.
