Manchester United transfer news
The Spanish playmaker was put up for sale by Barcelona and also rejected by Arsenal, but has gone on to shine in the Premier League for Chelsea this season.
Van Gaal supposedly had other top targets in mind for the transfer window, with Fabregas one of his predecessor David Moyes’ main priorities.
Still, United’s midfield signings such as Angel Di Maria and Ander Herrera have not had the same impact as the in-form Blues man this term.
