Cesc Fabregas still eager to join Manchester United

Stanley Chou

A report from the Guardian's Daniel Taylor states that Manchester United are still in the hunt for Cesc Fabregas, who wants to join the club despite his statements to the contrary.

Manchester United are still pursuing Cesc Fabregas, and the player would "jump at the chance" to move to Old Trafford, according to a report in the Guardian.

Daniel Taylor claims that Cesc Fabregas could still move to Old Trafford in a longer piece concerning the future of Wayne Rooney, despite the fact the player had stated in a press conference earlier this season that he would remain at Barcelona.

The news may go some way to explaining the sudden quiet at United, who could be preparing a further bid for the player. Reports suggest United are determined to secure at least one marquee signing this summer, and it appears the deal is not as dead as had been previously suggested.

This shouldn't be too much of a surprise - on-the-record remarks in football are rarely reliable enough to be taken as gospel, and the initial reasons for Fabregas being ready to consider a move have not changed. Whether United will make that third bid, however, remains to be seen. With the season opener against Swansea City fast approaching, time for the club to do business is surely running out.
