Paul McGrath believes Cesc Fabregas would've chosen Manchester United over Chelsea - if he'd been given the chance. Fabregas returned to the Premier League this summer, after three years with boyhood club Barcelona, joining Chelsea for £27m.

"I'm sure Cesc Fabregas would have picked Man United [over Chelsea] simply because of the history," former United defender McGrath told talkSPORT.

"Most people believe that United is the bigger club, with the history and everything else.

"It is amazing we can't get these players. I think it is a lack of leadership on the Manchester United side.

"The club doesn't need selling because people want to play for them but it is going out there, getting those players, and doing it quick."
