Arsene Wenger has been told by Arsenal officials to seriously consider resigning Cesc Fabregas should Barcelona decide to sell him, reports the Metro.
Fabregas looks set to leave the Nou Camp this summer after he was one of few players left out of Barcelona's kit launch for next season.
Reports suggest that new manager Luis Enrique is preparing to sell the Spaniard after an indifferent season for the La Liga giants.
Manchester United, who tried in vain to sign Fabregas last summer, are reportedly ready to renew their interest.
Louis van Gaal is ready to make the Spaniard part of an ambitious recruitment drive and will launch a £30m offer in the coming days.
However, Arsenal had a buy-back clause inserted into Fabregas's contract when he left the Emirates in 2011, meaning Wenger holds all the cards in the chase.
Despite this, Wenger is not yet considering a bid for the 27-year-old but has been told by senior Arsenal officials to reconsider should Manchester United launch their reported offer.
Coaching staff are keen to see the former Gunners captain return to north London, especially if the alternative is lining up against him at Old Trafford next season.
Fabregas is also still a fan favourite amongst the Arsenal faithful and bringing him back would do wonders for Wenger's relationship with the terraces.
