Cesc Fabregas interesting Manchester City

The future of Cesc Fabregas as a Barcelona player will be the subject of intense speculation once again this summer. Twelve months ago Fabregas was courted by Manchester United, and it may be that they return for the former Arsenal captain again.

There could, however, also be interest in Fabregas from the other prominent club in Manchester, with Mundo Deportivo claiming City and, more specifically, their sporting director Txiki Begiristain are keen on the acquisition of the Spain international.

It is reported that Begiristain’s counterpart at Barcelona, Andoni Zubizarreta, wants Fabregas to stay with Barcelona, but the player’s position at the Camp Nou will very much depend on the appointment of a new manager. Fabregas would happily stay with the club should they hire Luis Enrique.

Were Manchester City able to complete a transfer for Fabregas, he would be joining a number of former Arsenal teammates at the Etihad Stadium. Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri have both left Arsenal for City in recent seasons, while Bacary Sagna may quit the Emirates Stadium in the summer transfer window of this year.

Manchester United, meanwhile, are reported to maintain their own interest in Fabregas in their pursuit of a creative midfield player of some repute. The club may not have a permanent manager but Ed Woodward and his Manchester United executives are still making moves for a number of targets.

It is not known if Manchester United have made another approach for Fabregas, having failed with three bids last summer, but the 26-year-old is reported to remain under consideration.
