Man Utd tell £35M Cesc they'll DOUBLE his Barcelona wages

Manchester United are willing to DOUBLE Cesc Fabregas' Barcelona wages to bring him back to England this summer. The Mirror says Fabregas will consider a switch to United if Barca accept a bid for him and is now waiting to see what develops.

A second offer of £30 million - rising to £35 million in bonuses - was tabled by United over the weekend.

If United can find a breakthrough, they will tell Fabregas he can double his £100,000-a-week Barca wages by moving to Manchester this summer.

A Spanish source said: "Manchester United are deadly serious about signing Fabregas and have made a second bid.

"There is a lot of uncertainty at Barcelona at the moment and it is hard to predict what will happen.

"But one thing is for sure and that is that Fabregas could earn a lot more money by joining United.

"That will not be his top priority, but United hope it will help them to clinch a deal.

"Cesc had been planning to stay in Barcelona for at least one more year, but if the club accept a bid for him, then, of course, he will have to think about his future."
