Manchester United plot record breaking £45m bid for Barca star

Published 3 Comments

Manchester United are plotting to break their transfer record with a £45million deal for former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas, according to reports.

The Daily Star claims that the reigning Premier League champions are willing to spend big in order to revamp their ailing squad, and see the Spaniard as an ideal candidate to help realise the team’s ambitions moving forward. As such it’s claimed that they are plotting to part with £45million of the rumoured £150million they have budgeted for the coming transfer window, and are confident of getting him thanks to his uncertain future at Barcelona.

Last summer the Old Trafford outfit tried and failed to secure the services of Fabregas, as David Moyes endured a torrid start to life as United boss. If Louis van Gaal takes over however - as is it generally assumed he will - then the script could be very different indeed this time around.

The same report states that the powers that be at the Red Devils will consent to paying the 27-year-old £200,000-a-week to tempt him back to England, and the fact that he has been left on the sidelines in the biggest matches this year could aid their cause. United will likely face competition to sign their man, with Arsenal and Manchester City also pursuing summer deals for the midfielder.
