Cesc Fabregas prioritises Arsenal over United move, says journalist

Published 1 Comments

Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas would reject a move to Manchester United if it meant he could rejoin former side Arsenal, according to Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri.

Fabregas is said to be keen on a move back to England if Barcelona decide to cash in on him during the summer transfer window.

Manchester United are said to be showing the most interest in former Arsenal midfielder Fabregas at this moment in time, however Gunners boss Arsene Wenger will have first refusal on the 27-year-old if another club was to match Barcelona’s valuation of the Spanish international.

And Palmeri believes Fabregas has aspirations to return to the Emirates Stadium to work under Wenger once again after previously spending eight years at the north London outfit.

The CNN journalist took to Twitter to say on Fabregas: “Cesc has made Mufc aware that, in spite of not turning down them, still - in case of moving - his priority will be Arsenal. But the problem is that so far Arsenal haven't made any tiny step,nor with player nor with club, absolutely nothing.

“So the situation is in stand-by. Fabregas waiting for Arsenal; Mufc waiting for Fabregas; Barcelona waiting for evaluating a proper bid.”

New Barcelona boss Luis Enrique refused to be drawn on speculation linking Fabregas with a move back to the Premier League during his first press conference since taking over the reins at the Camp Nou.
