Second Bid For Fab?
Since taking over from the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United, David Moyes has made no secret of his desires of signing a new playmaker preferably to partner Michael Carrick in the heart of the midfield.
With one player having already rejected a move in favour of Champions League winners Bayern Munich, of course I am speaking of Thiago Alcantara, Moyes’ desperation has stepped up a gear or two.
Next target Thiago’s teammate Cesc Fabregas, the former Arsenal skipper. In an optimistic bid to lure the Barcelona maestro to Old Trafford, United have already had a bid turned down. But recent reports have suggested that United will not be put off that easily and have made a second audacious bid.
The former Arsenal talisman, who is at the moment behind Andres Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez in the pecking order, would relish a return to the Premier League and more importantly first team football.
Whether that will be at Manchester United come next season remains to be seen. And not to mention that Arsenal have a first refusal clause in Fabregas’ contract which indicates that if Wenger so wishes to match the Premier League champions bid then they too would be in line to sign the 26 year-old.
These are anxious times ahead for both Premier League clubs and FC Barcelona who are also manager-less following the unfortunate resignation of Tito Villanova, as he hopes to make a steady recovery from cancer.
