Ex-United stopper thinks a move to Manchester would suit Spaniard.
Former Manchester United defender David May believes that a move to Old Trafford would suit Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas, Sky Sports reports.
The current Premier League champions have been knocked back in their pursuit of the Spanish international so far after seeing two separate bids rejected.
New United manager David Moyes is growing frustrated at missing out on his projected targets, but May, who played for the club between 1994-2003, believes that the former Arsenal skipper would be keen on a return to the Premier League if Barcelona’s asking price is met.
“When good players are there it’s right that United should go for them. I wouldn’t say that they’re desperate; Barcelona are holding on to him, and rightly so because he is a good player,” he said.
“I think it’s down to Cesc at the end of the day. If he feels he’s not going to get in front of Xavi and (Andrés) Iniesta then the move to United would be perfect for him.”
United have also been fending off speculation surrounding star striker Wayne Rooney, who has been linked with a move to Arsenal and Chelsea, amongst others, and May also feels that the club should reject and bids that come their way and hold on to the England man at all costs.
“To lose Wayne would be losing probably 20 goals next season and you’re going to run out of time [to replace him], with forwards at a premium.
“If we do get rid of Wayne or if he decides to leave then we’ve got to replace him. Clubs out there don’t want to lose their best players.”
