Manchester United have tabled a new bid for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas. United have reportedly tabled an improved £30m plus add-ons bid for Fabregas.

Having failed with a bid of around £25m last week, Sky Sports sources now suggest United have returned with an improved offer in a bid to land David Moyes his first big signing since joining the club.

Chief executive Ed Woodward left United's pre-season tour ahead of schedule on Wednesday in order to return to Europe to carry out urgent transfer business, with it understood to concern a player arriving at Old Trafford.
