Manchester United goalkeeper keen to join up with Spanish compatriot.
Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea has urged his Spanish compatriot Cesc Fabregas to join him at Old Trafford according to The Express.
Speculation regarding Fabregas’ future has been going on for some time after United declared an interest in signing the former Arsenal captain.
Barcelona have insisted that Fabregas is not for sale but United are expected to make one final bid before turning their attentions elsewhere.
Fabregas has failed to make the expected impact on the Barcelona team since arriving from Arsenal two years ago.
He has often found himself starting from the bench and is likely to find his first team prospects further diminished this season following the arrival of the Brazilian wonderkid Neymar at the Nou Camp.
That prompted speculation that Fabregas could be tempted to leave the club in order to secure first team football as he looks to book his place in the Spanish national team ahead of next summer’s World Cup finals tournament in Brazil.
United manager David Moyes is thought to have made signing a central midfielder one of his top priorities this summer after taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson.
But has already found himself frustrated in his pursuit of Thiago Alcantara, who joined Bayern Munich.
That has led to De Gea urging Fabregas to join the Premier League champions, expressing his belief that he would fit in perfectly at the club.
