Man Utd seeking Spanish Connection?
Francesc Fabregas, well-known throughout England for his exploits under Arsene Wenger's guidance, has been linked with a sensational switch to Mancunian red as reports stir that he is unhappy at Barcelona. It is a well-known fact that he remains an understudy to the likes of Xavi, Iniesta and Busquets in the meantime, but many see him as the perfect successor. The media are starting to wonder whether a player as good as Fabregas can ever be happy with sitting in wait for the Barca talismans to move on- and perhaps Fabregas wants some action of his own.
The Manchester United midfield has often been looked at as having lots of guile, commitment and hard-work in the form of players like Fletcher, Cleverley and Carrick- but lacking in creativity which has prompted the re-modelling of Giggs' game to sometimes play there, and Anderson to play a creative role to inconsistent effect. Fabregas is seen by many as the piece that completes the midfield puzzle and could well turn it into a world class midfield.
Rumours are that with Fabregas himself unhappy, it would take something over £35 million bid to even catch the interest of Barcelona, who smacked a £174 million release clause on him when initially re-signing him from Arsenal. Funds at Manchester United are thought to be reasonably favourable as they continue to do well as a brand.
