Manchester United won't drop their interest in Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas this season.

United have failed with two bids for the former Arsenal captain this summer and are unlikely to try again before next week's transfer deadline.

However, The Sun says United could return with a third bid for Barcelona midfielder Cesc in January if the Spain international, 26, is not getting regular football.

There remains doubts over Cesc's place in Barca coach Tata Martino's plans, particularly after the Sergio Busquets inking new terms this week.
