Spain midfielder won’t be leaving the Nou Camp with Manchester United after his signature
New Barcelona coach Gerardo Martino insists Cesc Fabregas is not for sale amid repeated interest from Manchester United, Fox Sports are reporting.
Red Devil’s boss David Moyes has made former Arsenal midfielder Fabregas his main transfer target this summer and has already had two bids, reported to be £25 million and £30m, turned away by Bara.
Moyes won’t give up the chase for the 26-year-old that easily and is expected to return with a third offer, also informing reporters on Thursday that they were in the process of negotiating with the Catalan club.
But it’s likely to fall on deaf ears once again with Martino, who succeeds Tito Vilanova after he stepped down last Friday to continue his battle with cancer, revealing that he considers Fabregas to be a major part of his plans next season.
“I’m not going to involve myself in the club’s accounts, but considering the club has already rejected two offers, I would guess it will reject a third. In other words, Fabregas will remain here,” he said during his first press conference.
Vice-president Josep Maria Bartomeu lent his support to the the Argentinean’s stance on the Spain international, saying: “It’s logical that we’ve had offers for Fabregas because he is a quality player, but he is not for sale.”
