Old Trafford side linked with move for to sign former Arsenal captain.
Manchester United are eyeing unsettled Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas.
This week, Cesc spoke of his frustration over a lack of starts this season under new coach Tito Vilanova.
France Football says United and PSG are on red alert of Cesc being unsettled and internally discussing a massive January offer for the ex-Arsenal captain.
Both clubs are drawing up bids of £35 million to test Barca’s resolve.
Sir Alex Ferguson spent much of the summer reportedly looking to bring in a creative midfielder and even put in a big money offer for Brazilian teenager Lucas Moura but this source believes that the Scot has now set his sights on a new target to fill a role he appears keen to deal with.
However that said it does seem highly unlikely Cesc Fabregas would look to leave Barcelona any time soon. The former Nou Camp youth team player spent eight years at Arsenal before making an emotional return to the Catalan club last summer and talk of the Spanish international being unhappy are probably being blown out of all proportion.
The substance of such exit talk surrounds the midfielder’s apparent unhappiness about playing only a supporting role in the Barcelona squad, however Fabregas has started all the club’s La Liga matches this season so one wonders whether such issues are based in reality.
That isn’t to say that Man United wouldn’t welcome the addition of a forward thinking central midfield option especially given that Paul Scholes is nearing the end of his glittering career and Michael Carrick doesn’t occupy as advanced a position as he once did.
Darren Fletcher faces an uncertain future after returning from a long term illness and Tom Cleverley is yet to prove himself with a sustained run in the first team.
Barcelona spent £22m to bring Fabregas back from North London a year ago and are unlikely to entertain the notion of offers for the 25 year old.
