Ex-Arsenal captain insists he is currently content in Catalonia though.
New Manchester United head coach David Moyes is said to be prepared to wait for as long as possible in order to be able to persuade FC Barcelona midfield player Cesc Fabregas to move to Old Trafford this summer, according to reports in the Daily Star.
The coveted Spain international has only been with the Liga giants for the past two seasons now, having originally moved to Camp Nou from Arsenal for a fee that could rise to as much as 34 million euros in Aug 2011.
However, in the intervening two-year period the 26-year-old has found it hard to win a regular starting berth in the Catalans’ midfield, competing as he is with the likes of fellow Spaniards Sergio Busquets, Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta.
Fabregas did, though, enjoy a more productive campaign last time out, registering 14 goals and 12 assists in his 48 matches in all competitions for Barca and despite insisting just this week that he had no intention of leaving the Spanish champions this summer, Moyes still feels he has a chance of convincing the player to move to the north west later on in the close season.
