Manchester United appear deadly serious about moving for Cesc Fabregas, according to Spanish journalist Guillem Balague.
Having missed out on midfielder Thiago Alcantara, David Moyes is said to have turned his attentions directly to the former Arsenal man.
He tweeted this lunchtime:
Manchester United have just made a 30 million euros offer for Cesc Fabregas. More on @diarioas soon— Guillem Balague (@GuillemBalague) July 15, 2013
Sky Sports have also followed up on the Tweet, describing it as emerging from 'Sky Sources' rather than Balague directly.
Fabregas has been heavily linked to both former club Arsenal and Manchester United this summer, but has been keen to affirm his commitment to Barcelona.
Indeed with Thiago sold, surely it seems more unlikely Barcelona would agree to let him go, even for a huge bid.
We remain doubtful this will be a move which comes off.
