Man Utd banking on RvP to convince Cesc about move

Manchester United are banking on Robin van Persie to convince Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas about joining him at Old Trafford.

The London Evening Standard says United hope the presence of Van Persie at Old Trafford can convince Fabregas to return to the Premier League.

United are chasing the 26-year-old as they bid to strengthen their midfield next season.

Van Persie and Fabregas spent seven years together at Arsenal and it is hoped their friendship — and the fact the Dutchman won the Premier League title in his first season at United — can convince Fabregas to return to England.
