Van Gaal happy for Man Utd to leave Cesc to Arsenal

Louis van Gaal is reluctant for Manchester United to pursue a deal for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas. The Mail on Sunday says while his first club, Arsenal, are watching developments, United will not enter an auction for a player who is not on new manager Van Gaal's wish-list.

Last summer Fabregas was the top target for David Moyes but, after weeks of talks and two bids of up to £30million, the player decided to stay in Spain.

The resulting fall-out saw Moyes and executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward criticised for failing to land their man and their partnership never recovered.
