Manchester United’s hopes of signing FC Barcelona midfield player Cesc Fabregas were said to be improving slightly with the Spaniard still waiting to receive assurances from the Liga champions about his long-term future at Camp Nou, according to exclusive reports in the Sun.

The Red Devils have been keeping close tabs on the former Arsenal skipper for some time now, with new United head coach David Moyes having made the capture of the Spain international his main priority of the summer transfer window.

However, so far the Premier League champions have had two bids of £26 million, followed by a second club-record offer of £31m, both rejected by the Catalans, with the club said to be prepared to even go as high as £35m in order to bring the 26-year-old to Old Trafford this summer.

And the chances of Fabregas making the move back to the Premier League, just two years after he left the Emirates to re-join his boyhood club, have increased after it emerged that the playmaker was still to be given any guarantees about his role in the team next season under new Barca boss Gerardo Martino.

Fabregas has registered a hugely impressive 29 goals and 32 assists for Barcelona in just 96 matches since making the move back to Spain in August 2011 for an initial fee of €29m.
