Manchester United are ready to make an audacious bid to sign Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas according to The Sunday Express.

The Premier League Champions are drawing up their summer shortlist of potential targets now that new manager David Moyes has begun work at the club.

The former Everton manager, who has replaced the retired Sir Alex Ferguson, has reportedly identified the centre midfield position as one that needs strengthening.

The club are short of options in the middle of the park following the retirement of Paul Scholes, the inconsistent form of Anderson and the uncertain future of the injury hit Darren Fletcher.

Moyes is keen to put his own stamp on the team and has reportedly identified Fabregas as one of his top summer targets.

Fabregas has struggle to impose himself on the Barcelona first team since joining in a £35 million deal from Arsenal two years ago.

It is thought the Catalan giants are willing to consider offers for the Spanish star which could pave the way for his return to the Premier League.

United may find themselves facing competition for Fabregas’ signature from his former club Arsenal.

The Gunners reportedly have first refusal on their former captain and look ready to splash the cash this summer in an attempt to re-establish themselves as a team capable of challenging for the title.
