Westlife singer Shane Filan has urged Manchester United to renew their interest in Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas when the transfer window opens once again in January.

Fabregas was the subject of three failed bids from the Premier League champions during the summer transfer period, but Barcelona were unwilling to allow the player to leave the Camp Nou.

The Spain international also displayed no intention to leave Barcelona for Manchester United, which left David Moyes to identify alternative targets as the transfer deadline approached.

Maroaune Fellaini was the only capture of note over the summer, but Manchester United are expected demonstrate their intent in the transfer market at the next available opportunity.

Another approach for Fabregas is something Filan, who sold 50 million records with Westlife before they called it a day, believes is imperative if Manchester United still harbour a desire to recruit a midfielder of some repute.

"Fabregas would've been an amazing signing, a dream signing, and I think they have to try to get him in January," Filan told

"They need somebody like that, somebody with experience who can just come into the team and control the game, to not be afraid to slip a few passes through and take a few chances."

Manchester United, meanwhile, host Southampton at Old Trafford on Saturday knowing that three points is vitally important to not lose sight of the top four.
