Manchester United will be keeping an eye on Barcelona coach Tata Martino's team selection this week.

Manchester United will be keeping an eye on Barcelona coach Tata Martino's team selection this week.

United chiefs still believe they can tempt Cesc Fabregas away from the Nou Camp in January if he cannot earn a regular start under Martino.

In the absence of Lionel Messi, Cesc has been outstanding for Barca in the 'false' 9 position - as he has been for Spain.

But Marca says with Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Lionel Messi all fully fit, Martino now faces the dilemma of whether to drop the in-form Cesc for his big name trio.

Should that happen, United will again make contact with Cesc's camp to register their interest - and a guarantee of regular first team football.
