Manchester United have not given up on their pursuit to sign Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas.
Old Trafford boss David Moyes has denied to rule out a move for the former Arsenal skipper and is, according to The Telegraph preparing a final £40 million bid.
Barcelona have already rejected two bids from Manchester United for Fabregas, believed to be £25 million and the latest bid of £30 million.
While, the 26-year-old recently revealed his desire to stay at the Catalan club.
Fabregas said: "It has always been my dream to play for Barcelona and that has not changed.
"I am very happy with life at the club and I have never thought about leaving Barca."
Manchester United were understood to have turned their attention to Everton's Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini with reports suggesting that Moyes opened talks for the 25-year-old last week.
However, The Telegraph and The Daily Mail understand that the Premier League champions are closely monitoring Fabregas' situation and will wait until the final week of the transfer window, tracking the opportunities he will receive from Barcelona at the start of the season.
Fabregas is set to miss Barcelona's season opener against Levante on Sunday after spraining ankle ligaments but is expected to recover for the next Wednesday's Super Cup game against Atletico Madrid, followed by four more La Liga games scheduled before the transfer window shuts.
