David Moyes Seeks Quick Fabregas Transfer
Manchester United are set to break the bank to bring Cesc Fabregas back to England. Despite a seemingly bottomless pit of transfer funds appearing at the Emirates over recent months, it seems that Manchester United may be a more likely destination for Arsene Wenger’s one time protégé. So, could a Cesc Fabregas transfer really be David Moyes first masterstroke in the Old Trafford hot seat?
It has been no secret that the state of Manchester United’s midfield has long been in question on the Old Trafford terraces. With the possible departure of Anderson, the less than likely return of Darren Fletcher and the recent retirement of Paul Scholes, it seems that David Moyes is determined to prove that Manchester United still have what it takes to attract the world’s best talent. Could a Cesc Fabregas transfer be the signing of the summer?
David Moyes was understandably eager to downplay any interest in Thiago Alcantara, as Bayern Munich stole a march on their intercontinental rivals in capturing the Spanish talent. Thiago certainly appeared to be everything Moyes would have been seeking for a first major signing. He’s young, brings incredible attacking flair and creativity, and most importantly, many have already credited him with the ability to match the standards set by former Barcelona teammate, Xavi.
Fortunately for United fans, it seems that Barcelona have more than one star attraction ready to leave in search of additional playing time. The recent capture of Neymar has increased the already hefty competition for a starting spot in the Barcelona 11 and, with Fabregas already a proven star of the English Premier League, few would baulk at seeing the former Arsenal man return.
With a bid of £25 million expected to be pushed through in the coming hours, David Moyes is clearly desperate to reinstate the kind of midfield dominance United have lacked ever since the legendary central pairing of Paul Scholes and Roy Keane.
As with the weather, things are likely to to start heating up in the Cesc Fabregas transfer saga. So, is he the right man for United? Would he ever play for an English Premier League side other than Arsenal? As always, we love to hear your thoughts.
