The Barca ace is unhappy in Catalonia.
Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has once again emerged as a transfer target for Manchester United as the club looks to strengthen over the summer, reports the Guardian.
The former Arsenal star was the subject of the Red Devils’ interest last year when they failed in two bids for the Spain international – thought to be in the region of £25m and £30m.
United were prepared to up their offer to £35m in order to land Fabregas, but the Catalan born player insisted that he was happy at the Nou Camp and did not want to leave.
Since then however the 26-year-old has been marginalised by head coach Gerardo Martino and things came to a head in the league match with Athletic Bilbao at the weekend when the Spaniard was booed by his own fans.
Fabregas has previously admitted that his love for the Gunners would make a return to anywhere else in England other than the Emirates Stadium difficult.
Yet the chance to work under either Carlo Ancelotti or Louis van Gaal – the two favourites to succeed Moyes – would be tempting, especially when life in Catalonia has taken a turn for the worse for the midfield ace.
The Red Devils and in particular their under fire chief executive Ed Woodward are keen to mark their intentions this summer with some world-class signings and Fabregas would certainly fit the bill.
The Spanish ace has been impressive since a return to his boyhood club in 2011, scoring 42 goals and providing 56 assists in 147 matches.
