Red Devils are said to be increasingly confident of signing the ex-Gunner.
Manchester United are to step up their attempts to sign coveted FC Barcelona midfield player Cesc Fabregas this summer, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
The highly-rated Spain international has only been at Camp Nou for the past two seasons now, having joined the Liga giants from Arsenal for a fee that could rise to as much as 34 million euros in Aug 2011.
However, it is fair to say that the 26-year-old has had an up-and-down time of it in Catalonia as he has struggled to nail down a regular starting berth in the Barca midfield, competing with the likes of fellow Spaniards Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta and Sergio Busquests.
That being said though, Fabregas has just enjoyed his most productive campaign since arriving at the club, registering an impressive 14 goals and 12 assists in just 48 matches in all competitions, including 11 goals and 11 assists in only 32 league outings as Barcelona reclaimed the league title from arch-rivals Real Madrid.
And now new United boss David Moyes is understood to be keen to push through a move for Fabregas in the next few weeks before the Premier League champions depart on their summer tour of Asia.
