David Moyes has confirmed that Manchester United submitted a bid for Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas.
It is the first time that Moyes has spoken out about any transfer target this summer as he has played his cards close to his chest up until now.
“I don’t like to talk about players at other clubs but I can confirm we made a bid for him,” Moyes said when asked about Fabregas according to The Guardian.
This is fantastic news for United. Although the bid had seemed genuine, a public admission of submitting an offer will show Fabregas that we are genuine about trying to sign him this summer.
And now that Ed Woodward is back in Manchester to wrap up some transfer business, there is a real chance that Fabregas could become a United player after Spanish radio station RAC1 revealed that he is having doubts about his Barcelona future.
RAC1 saying Fàbregas has doubts about staying with Barcelona next season. We finally have some interesting information. Could be big.
