The Mail on Sunday says United are considering a final make-or-break £36million bid to land Fabregas.
But sources close to Fabregas say he will stay at the Nou Camp if he receives assurances that his new manager Gerardo Martino wants him.
Fabregas begins pre-season training tomorrow and will hold immediate talks with Martino. United’s desperation to make a first marquee signing for David Moyes will see them make a third and final offer of £36m if they are given any encouragement by Fabregas. Earlier bids of £26m and £30m have already been rejected.
