Manchester United are prepared to offer Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas €6m-a-season net in order to convince the unwanted Spain international to come to Old Trafford this summer. The 27-year-old looks certain to return to the Premier League after reports emerged claiming the Catalan giants are prepared to sell.

Despite claims Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is not considering a move for Fabregas - who is also believed to be on the radar of Chelsea, Arsenal Manchester City and Liverpool - Spanish newspaper Marca insist the Red Devils are preparing a bid of around €40m and will offer the World Cup winner a pay rise. Fabregas currently earns less than €5m-a-season at the Camp Nou.

However, the former Arsenal star is open to the idea of coming back to England after failing to produce his best form at his boyhood club. The fact sections of the Barcelona supporters whistled him on occasions this season is also likely to have played a role in his willingness to leave the La Liga runners-up.

Luis Enrique is the man assigned the unenviable job of overhauling the Barcelona team following his appointment as the club's head coach last month. Under his predecessor Tata Martino, the four-time European champions ended this season without a major trophy.

United, meanwhile, are also looking to improve their squad following a desperately poor campaign under the management of David Moyes, who was sacked in April. Van Gaal, however, will trust the likes of Ed Woodward and co. to get deals over the line while he takes charge of the Netherlands at the World Cup finals.
