Cesc Fabregas’ agent has denied that Manchester United have had contact with the Fabregas camp about a potential move to Old Trafford.
Darren Dein denied any contact with United as Fabregas’ representation make their first statement regarding a move according to Catalunya Radio.
“We have not spoken to United,” Dein reportedly told Barcelona executives.
Fabregas joined up with his Barcelona teammates today after his extended break following Spain’s participation in the Confederations Cup and passed his medical ahead of starting pre-season training under new manager Gerardo Martino.
Dein’s denial of contact with United is in contrast to reports that emerged in England this week and while Moyes confirmed that negotiations were ongoing, it seems that United may have only be dealing with Barcelona directly.
Fabregas is expected to make a public statement this week about his future at Barcelona but Dein’s denial of any contact whatsoever with United indicates that Barcelona are going to continue to stand firm with Fabregas and it would be a big surprise if the midfielder declared his intention to leave the club given how publicly they have stood in his corner.
