- Manchester United 'offer £26m for Fabregas'09:39 | 16/07/2013
Widespread reports indicate that Manchester United have made a 30 million euro (£26m) offer for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
United were strongly linked with another La Masia graduate in Thiago Alcantara before he agreed to sign for Bayern Munich on Sunday and it appears the club have quickly switched their focus to Fabregas.
Various broadcasters and national newspapers have all reported that United have made an official approach to Barcelona in an attempt to prise the World Cup and twice European Championship winner from Camp Nou.
The Spain international rejoined his boyhood club in 2011 when he transferred from Arsenal in a deal worth a potential £35 million and has won the Copa del Rey and La Liga with Barca.
Last season Fabregas started 30 games in La Liga, scoring 11 times and claiming 11 assists, and the 26-year-old would add some much-needed quality to the United midfield.
