Manchester United reportedly remain hopeful they can secure a deal for Cesc Fabregas before the transfer deadline having received encouragement from the representatives of the Barcelona midfielder.

Fabregas has been the subject of two failed bids from the Premier League champions but, according to ESPN, Manchester United are confident a deal can be agreed with Barcelona.

Barcelona have maintained for the entirety of their dealings with Manchester United that Fabregas is not available for transfer, and the club's sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta claims the Red Devils have accepted their stance.

However, David Moyes has not yet conceded defeat in his pursuit of the 26-year-old former Arsenal captain, who is reportedly willing to leave the Camp Nou should he not receive sufficient guarantees about his place in the Barcelona team.

The Fabregas camp, it is claimed, would rather their client stays with Barcelona, but would be prepared to pursue a move to Old Trafford if their concerns are not placated by his current employers.

Fabregas has been identified by Manchester United as their prime target for the summer transfer window as Moyes looks to recruit a player of repute to reinforce the midfield he has inherited.

Such is the want to bring Fabreas to Manchester, the club are ready to break their transfer record of £30.8 million - paid to sign Dimitar Berbatov - to ensure they capture the Spain international.
