Nou Camp star could be Old Trafford bound.
Man United have reportedly been put on high alert after hearing of Cesc Fabregas’s decision to quit Barcelona according to the Metro.
The 27 year old Spanish international came in for some criticism from his own supporters last season and was something of a scapegoat for Gerardo Martino’s trophy-less season, this despite the fact that the former Arsenal man was the club’s leading assist maker.
Louis Van Gaal will no doubt be keen to improve his midfield options and Fabregas would certainly be a top notch addition and has a proven Premier League pedigree.
The likes of Marouane Fellaini, Micheal Carrick, Darren Fletcher, Tom Cleverley and Shinji Kagawa may well be fearing the axe under the Dutch boss.
Fabregas racked up 303 appearances for Arsenal before returning to Barcelona but he hasn’t proved as big a success as many would have hoped.
Arsene Wenger may well be considering a move for the former Gunners skipper though arguably that are of his squad is perhaps not in as urgent need of investment as others.
Fabregas may be just one of a host of players new manager Luis Enrique may well offload as he seeks to freshen up the Barcelona squad.
