United make improved Fabregas bid

When quizzed about the transfer developments having seen Ed Woodward leave the tour prematurely, David Moyes said he was ‘hoping for good news in the not too distant future’.

Moyes’ insight was proven to have substance as fresh reports from the Press Association were emanating that we have upped the stakes in our pursuit of Cesc Fabregas, with a second, improved bid submitted.

The bid is rumoured to be an initial £30M plus add ons.

The fact that we have submitted the improved bid adds weight to the belief that there is interest from Fabregas’ side that he’d be willing to make an imminent return to England, despite Barcelona’s stubborn insistence that they will not entertain any offer.

It is clear as day that Moyes is intent on adding quality to the midfield. How strong our interest in Thiago Alcantara was is unclear, this move though is a message that we want to go one better and sign someone who is proven in the Premier League, rather than a move for the youngster which could have backfired.

Fabregas would be a vital piece in the jigsaw and a stunning capture from David Moyes if he were to pull it off.

The improved bid will hopefully tempt Barcelona into a sale, if accepted it would smash our transfer record.

In a World Cup year, as Jose Mourinho mischievously stated, anyone who is second choice would be in trouble. David De Gea and Robin Van Persie have already used their pulling power to try and lure Fabregas to United.

The same situation would be applicable in Fabregas’ case. The impenetrable duo of Xavi and Iniesta will not be budged just yet, meaning next season could be another one of frustration were he to remain at Barcelona.

This could well play into our hands.

  1. I won’t get too excited about Fabregas because we have suffered a lot of disappointment since 2009 years with transfers. However it would be a stunning signing by Moyes and a real statement of intent. It would be difficult to imagine Man Utd making a second bid if their wasn’t some encouragement from both Barcelona and Fabregas.

    Moyes needs a strong signing to launch his spell, but the club and the players also need a big signing or two. We are the Champions and we need to build on a talented team we already have. A talented team, but also one with flaws, and that is where Moyes can improve things.

    If we can make 2-3 really strong signings it will boost the current squad and individual players, like Robin Van Persie. I think when we have a world class player like Van Persie, we need to do everything to ensure he is surrounded by other top class talent. It will further enhance our ability to get the best of him, and everyone around him.

  2. Manchester United must sign midfielders this summer players like Cesc Fabregas,Kakà and Maruarane Felleini.

  3. David Moyes and the Head Honchos at Man U are more interested in convincing their fans that they are doing something in the transfer market than actually doing something. In my opinion, their activity in the transfer market is nothing more than a PR game. According to earlier reports, money is no obstacle. Then why not bid 40M for Fabregas, 50M for Baines and Fellaini and 100M for Bale? Altogether, that’s only $190M. If these are truly the players they want at Man U and they think these players will significantly improve the club for many years to come, they should submit a bid that will make it difficult for the clubs that own these players to say NO.
