New Manchester United head coach David Moyes will make one final last-ditch attempt to persuade unsettled FC Barcelona midfield player Cesc Fabregas to move to Old Trafford this summer, according to exclusive reports in the Daily Star.

The Premier League champions have been closely monitoring the Spain international’s situation for some time now in the hope of being able to persuade the 26-year-old to make a dramatic return to the English top flight this summer.

However, so far the Red Devils have seen two club-record bids for the former Arsenal captain rejected by the Spanish champions, although those setbacks have apparently not put Moyes off returning with a third and final offer for Fabregas.

The midfield player, who left the Emirates to re-join his boyhood club in a deal worth an initial fee of 29m euros in August 2011, has reportedly now been assured of more game time at Camp Nou next season by new Barca boss Gerard Martino.

To date, Fabregas has registered an impressive 29 goals and 32 assists in his 96 matches for the Catalans since returning home two years ago and with a contract with Barcelona that currently runs until June 30 2016, the Spaniards are under no pressure whatsoever to sell their playmaker this summer, regardless of the fee that United may put on the table for his services.
