Manchester United legend Denis Irwin says Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas is the club's No1 summer transfer target. Irwin told the Sunday World in Ireland that United are determined to sign the former Arsenal captain.

"United are going after Fabregas as keenly as they did Van Persie last year - Cesc will be their big summer buy," he declared in his column.

"And remember I told you here this time last year that United would get Robin van Persie? Well, they are going about getting Fabregas in much the same way."
