Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas is keeping his own counsel over Manchester United's determined pursuit of his transfer.

A shift in policy this summer has seen both United manager David Moyes and chief executive Ed Woodward openly declare they are bidding for the former Arsenal captain. Moyes confirmed a second bid had been tabled over the weekend.

And while Cesc declared earlier this summer he was happy at Barca, the silence since United's public confirmation of their two offers has Old Trafford officials increasingly confident of a push from the player's camp to get the deal over the line.
