Manchester United are ready to test the resolve of Barcelona for Cesc Fabregas.

The Independent says though the Barcelona player has suggested in interviews from the Spain camp at the Confederations Cup in Brazil that he does not wish to leave, he has provided the caveat that if the Catalan side wish him to go then he will have to do so. If, as seems possible, the club is forced to decide on keeping either Fabregas or the Brazilian Thiago then Fabregas may be the one who leaves.

He is viewed with nowhere near the same affection as at Arsenal.
