Manchester City could soon be about to launch an audacious bid for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas after enquiring into his availability, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The Spanish international has endured a mixed time at the Nou Camp since joining the Catalan club in 2011, and has so far failed to cement a regular starting place.

Fabregas spent eight years with Arsenal having joined the Gunners as a 16-year-old fresh from Barcelona's La Masia academy.

The attacking midfielder has maintained his connection with the Gunners despite eventually returning home last year, and today he revealed he would have happily stayed at Arsenal for the rest of his career had Barca not come calling.

Now though Manchester City are seemingly interested in testing his loyalty to Arsenal by approaching Barcelona over his availability according to Mundo Deportivo.

Earlier today reports of the Citizens interest in Sergio Busquets surfaced, however the Spanish paper maintains that Fabregas is Roberto Mancini's primary target.

According to the paper, Barcelona boss Tito Vilanova is growing increasingly angry at Manchester City's approaches for his players, and is not willing to sell anyone he considers as 'essential' anytime soon.

Reports of Manchester City's interest in various midfielders, including the Barcelona pair have increased in recent weeks as speculation over Yaya Toure's future continues.

Citizens coach David Platt insisted the Ivorian, as well as team-mate David Silva were not 'indispensable' to the team despite their status as two of the most vital players available to Mancini.
