Barcelona's Cesc warming to shock Man Utd move

Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas is keen on moving to Manchester United.

United have opened talks with Barca for the Spain international.

The London Evening Standard says United wanted the 26-year-old to strengthen their midfield next season and they have now opened talks with Barcelona.

It is understood the Spain star is interested in joining friend and former Arsenal team-mate Robin van Persie at United. Arsenal have first option to buy the midfielder back as part of the agreement which saw him join Barcelona for around £35m in 2011, but United are confident that will not be a stumbling block.

Along with Fabregas United have also enquired about another Barca midfielder, Thiago Alcantara, and they want to send out a real signal of intent following Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement and arrival of new coach David Moyes.
