Catalan maybe returning to the Premier League this summer.
Unsettled FC Barcelona midfield player Cesc Fabregas is new Manchester United head coach David Moyes’s number one transfer target of the summer according to former Red Devils star Dennis Irwin, reports ESPN.
The Spain international only moved to Camp Nou two seasons ago, signing for the Catalan club from Arsenal in Aug 2012 for a fee that could rise to as much as 34 million euros.
However, it is fair to say that in the intervening two-year period the 26-year-old has found it hard to settle and win a regular starting berth in the Barca midfield as he competes with fellow Spaniards Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta and Sergio Busquests.
In total, Fabregas has registered 29 goals and 32 assists in 96 matches in all competitions for the Liga champions, including an impressive 20 strikes and 21 assists in 60 league outings for the Spanish giants.
And it is those kind of eye-catching attacking numbers that has led Moyes to make the player his number one target for next season, with Irwin confirming as much by telling the Sunday World newspaper: “Cesc Fabregas has zoomed up Manchester United’s transfer target list to the top position and the champions are going to move heaven and earth to get him.
“The Barcelona star wants out of the Nou Camp and United want him badly, so the deal should be done easily enough. Fabregas is just the sort of all-action midfield player United need if they are to make a run at next season’s Champions League.
“Cesc won’t be short of offers for I believe this is going to be a transfer season where eye-boggling amounts of money will be spent.”
