Arsenal are right to back off from Cesc Fabregas 0

  The Telegraph’s Matt Law reported yesterday that, despite the player being made available by Barcelona, Arsenal hold no significant interest in Cesc Fabregas.

Time for Manchester United to snag Cesc Fabregas 0

Mention Cesc Fabregas’ name to Manchester United fans, and they’ll likely have horrible memories of last Summer and of their club being used as leverage during the squad-status spat between the Spanish international and Barcelona.

Tom Cleverley’s future at Manchester United 3

The press are widely reporting that Manchester United have lodged a £30m bid for Barcelona’s Cesc Fabregas.
