The former Arsenal man has come in for a fair bit of criticism of late and has become the subject of abuse from a section of his side’s own support and could therefore be ready to consider a move away from the Catalan club.
With David Moyes having been fired there is perhaps a better chance that top targets would consider a move to Old Trafford though a lot could well depend on whom Man United’s owners bring in as a long term replacement for the Scot, with Ryan Giggs taking the reins in the short-term.
It is perhaps surprising that Fabregas would receive such a reception from Barcelona supporters given that he is the club’s leading assist maker but he has in many ways become the scapegoat for a less than satisfactory campaign.
Man United could well do with fresh midfield options with the likes of Tom Cleverley, Darren Fletcher, loaned out Brazilian Anderson and Shinji Kagawa all fighting for their futures.
