Speaking to journalists at a press conference in Yokohama on United’s pre-season tour, Moyes noted that a second bid for Fabgregas had been submitted. Moyes, speaking of transfers to the club also noted: “‘Transfers are likely to happen later. Edward Woodward is working hard to make deals happen.”
United’s pursuit of Fabregas has left many fans, pundits and reporters doubtful as to whether the former Arsenal skipper would actually come to United and leave his boyhood club. There have been some reports in Spain however that Fabregas, with a world cup place to think about, is warming to the idea of getting regular football at the Premier League champions and placing a free bet on United that Cesc will be at Old Trafford next season wouldn’t be a bad shout.
It remains to be seen just how likely a deal is, but the fact United have returned with a second offer, thought to be in the region of £30 million suggest someone inside Old Trafford believes Fabregas would join the Reds.
