Someone is missing….

United’s attempted signing of Cesc Fabregas could be helped by the fact the midfielder is not travelling with the squad on its pre-season tour. 

The Spanish international has been omitted from the squad due to his involvement in the Confederations Cup.

Barcelona travel to Germany then Norway over the next few days without Fabregas with Sky Sports reporting that the former Arsenal man is considering a move to Old Trafford.

Arsenal who have first refusal on Fabregas have yet to register any interest in their former star and if Fabregas decides he needs regular football ahead of next Summer’s World Cup and Barcelona are willing to accept the Reds latest offer, then maybe a signing that seemed so unlikely only a week ago could actually come off.
