Manchester United have refused to give up their pursuit of Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas, despite him insisting he is staying at Camp Nou.
Both the Old Trafford club and Fabregas’ former side Arsenal were linked with a move for him after an unconvincing two seasons at Barcelona led to his future being questioned.
The 26-year-old this week publicly denied he would be going anywhere and insisted he was determined to stay and make a success of things at Camp Nou.
However, a report in the Daily Star claims new Manchester United manager David Moyes isn’t about to admit defeat in trying to persuade Fabregas to join the Premier League champions.
It suggests Barcelona’s summer business, what with the £50million signing of Brazil star Neymar, is providing hope to Moyes that the Spanish champions may be forced to sell.
Any prospect of Fabregas leaving Camp Nou is likely to interest Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, especially as the Gunners reportedly have first option on signing him owing to a clause in the deal that took him back to his boyhood club.
