Manchester United have submitted an improved second bid for Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas believed to be in the region of £30 million plus add-ons according to Sky Sports.
United’s original bid of €30 million was never officially rejected by Barcelona although the club reiterated that Fabregas was not for sale this summer.
Although, now that United have stepped up their interest with a second offer for Fabregas, it really indicates their intention to try and sign him this summer.
David Moyes has remained coy on who his top transfer targets were this year but given that he has now submitted two offers for Fabregas, the Scot has played his hand.
It is still going to be extremely difficult for United to land Fabregas as Barcelona have already let Thiago leave this summer but it is a really positive sign that United are genuinely in the market for a world class midfielder this year.
