Cesc Fabregas "likely" to sign for Manchester United

Jasper Juinen

Sky Sports News have reported that Cesc Fabregas looks "more and more likely" to be heading to Old Trafford as David Moyes confirms an improved second bid for the Barcelona midfielder.

Sky Sports News have claimed that Cesc Fabregas looks increasingly likely to be joining Manchester United, as David Moyes confirms in a press conference that an improved second offer for the midfielder has been made.

SSN's Kaveh Solhekol claimed that Barcelona's rejection of United's initial offer was not quite a firm, "not for sale" rebuttal, and that a fee could be agreed between the two clubs.

The station also reported that Barcelona will not make a decision on Fabregas' future until they have appointed a new manager, but that is expected to happen shortly, with some reports even suggesting it could happen as soon as today.

It's long been suggested that the club were the real issue here, with Barcelona reluctant to sell, but it seems that, for whatever reason, the Catalans are prepared to do business at the right price. Whether this current offer will be accepted or whether United will need to go higher remains to be seen, but it is good news for those who want to see the midfielder in a red shirt next season.
