Barcelona ace Cesc tells Man Utd he wants move

Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has told Manchester United he wants to move to Old Trafford. The Sunday Express says he has agreed to join Manchester United following a secret meeting between the Barcelona star's agent Darren Dein and Old Trafford chief executive Ed Woodward.

Dein also helped swing United's £24million capture of Robin van Persie last summer.

Woodward's return from United's Far East tour a fortnight ago was to push the Cesc deal along - and included a meeting with the respected Dein.

United feel Fabregas will have to make a transfer demand to force Barca's hand, with Gerardo Martino reluctant to have his first act as new coach to oversee the former Arsenal captain's sale.
