Fabregas could be leaving Barca this summer.
It appears Cesc Fabregas’ time at Barcelona is coming to an end as the club are poised to accept a £40m offer for the former Arsenal man from Manchester United, according to Spanish daily Marca.
Barca are in no rush to sell the 27-year-old, but have made it clear – particularly among Premier League clubs, who are thought to be the most keen – that they will accept a bid if the price is right.
Fabregas has endured a difficult year at the Nou Camp in 2013/14, with a lack of consistent game time added to a poor overall campaign for the club.
The Catalans ended the term without a major trophy for the first time since 2008 and the fans made their feelings towards the Spanish midfielder well known by booing him.
United are known to have been interested in signing Fabregas in recent times and had two offers for the Spain international rejected in 2013.
It is expected to be a summer of change all round at Barca in 2014, with stalwarts Carles Puyol and Victor Valdes having already confirmed they are leaving.
New head coach Luis Enrique is also thinking of selling Dani Alves, Javier Mascherano, Pedro, Alexis Sanchez, Alex Song and Cristian Tello as well, along with Fabregas, whilst goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen has already been bought in from Borussia Monchengladbach.
The former Gunners captain made the switch from the Emirates Stadium to his boyhood club in 2011 in an eventual £35m deal, after add-ons.
Since then Fabregas has won La Liga and the Copa del Rey, but could prove to be just the creative source the Red Devils need in central midfield and new manager Louis van Gaal could start his reign at Old Trafford with an immediate marquee signing.
