    0% chance of Fabregas happening for you lot for about 10 reasons.

    £25m is a laughable bid tbh

    Trying to deflect away from the whole Thiago affair.

    Kinda worrying, seems like a panic bid after losing Thiago. And it obviously won't be accepted, by the player or club... Gives the impression we're running out of ideas. Hopefully it's not true, I suspect it's not tbh.

    £25m is a bit insulting to be honest, although not sure if it's a serious bid. Some good sources on it so I'd be surprised if this wasn't true..

    God what terrible reporting. Are they choosing to ignore the add on clauses that all widely reported when Barca bought him?

    £25 mil according to the BBC, they generally don't put the story up unless it's legit.

    Its being reported on BBC Sport for god sake :facepalm2: Moyes has clearly spent too much time out in the sun.

    The thought of Fab in the United shirt doesn't do much for me, but Pier Morgan's meltdown does. That would top RVP, which provided me with a good year's worth of twitter entertainment.

    The bid is likely to be legit, but Barca won't sell him.

    doubt we will get fabregas but then again same could be said of van persie. Still a few good players out there if we actually put bids in, try and get a bayern player if they have been unsettled with the new players or fancy a new challenge. Id like pastore or verratti as money talks bid big.

    I'd be happy if we got Eriksen and Strootman tbh.

    FYI, it may not mean much but Fabregas has the same agent as RVP.

    There is simply no way this on, can you imagine the flack Tito would get if he let Fabregas and Thiago go in one summer? We'd be better off taking a pop at one of the Madrid lot.

    Surely Moysie would have asked his agent about the clauses in the contract before making the bid, right? :erm:

    Seems like a PR move to me, a bit like arsenal-suarez where we're just trying to show we mean business after missing out on thiago. cant see it happening at all

    Can't see it being a PR move, getting rejected by two players hardly looks good.

    Although my thinking is its an unlikely move for us, there must be something going on in Spain. There have been rumours all summer, then they get shot down, then United make a bid? Surely United aren't just firing blind, there must be something that makes them think there is a possibility of Cesc being on the move.

    We're not going to sign Fabregas, even if we offer Barca enough money for them to accept it I don't think he would want to play for us. Don't understand why we are doing this at all, Moyes is probably just going full football manager on us now he has some money to spend for the first time in his career.
