Spanish midfielders don’t you just love ’em.

United’s pursuit of Cesc Fabregas looks set to continue with reports that the Reds are set to increase their bid to £35 million for the Spanish midfielder. 

The Guardian notes:

Manchester United are considering shattering their record transfer fee to sign Cesc Fábregas after Barcelona rejected their second bid of £30m for the Spain midfielder.

United, who made the offer before Tito Vilanova resigned as coach owing to ill health on Friday, were privately given the same response as before – that the 26-year-old is “completely nontransferable”.

The champions are weighing up whether to make what could be their final play for their No1 target in the region of £35m – surpassing the £30.75m they paid to sign Dimitar Berbatov from Tottenham Hotspur in 2008.

Both David Moyes and Edward Woodward are leaving themselves open to a lot of criticism should United so blatantly pursue a player and not sign him. Whether Fabregas will join is anyone’s guess but the fact the club are so aggressively chasing him and willing to spend so much money, seems to indicate, there must be a feeling that the former Arsenal man isn’t averse to the idea of a move to Old Trafford.

    Sick and tired of the transfer window frenzy in journalism. Sick of us looking f%€ing stupid as well. The need for at least one central midfielder has been there for YEARS yet we still p%#s around. Piqué is the latest close to Fabrigas to say he won’t leave, can anyone really see him leaving Barca especially after they reluctantly lost our other ‘target’ (yeah right) Tiago. The same crap happened over Sneijder twice. The club are happy for the speculation and this time happy to publicly ‘persue’ a player they know there’s no chance of getting. Why? Obviously the Glazers. We haven’t got the fuc%ing money. Why the hell don’t they forget Fabrigas and get in Fellani.
