Man Utd fight Arsenal for £40m Cesc

DAVID MOYES is ready to outgun Arsenal in a £40million bidding war for Cesc Fabregas.

Manchester United’s new boss refuses to give up on signing the former Gunners skipper who is out of favour at Barcelona.Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger has first refusal on the World Cup-winning midfielder, 26.

But Moyes is ready to price him out in a straight fight this summer as he looks to start building a new era at Man Utd.

Fabregas has sad publicly that he wants to stay at the Nou Camp to fight for his place even after the £50m signing of Brazilian superstar Neymar.

But Moyes is ready to test his loyalty with the offer of playing at the heart of the team he is building at Old Trafford.

Moves to get Fabregas back to the Premier League began long before Moyes took over from Alex Ferguson last month.

Midfield is an area that needs urgent attention for the Premier League champs with Paul Scholes retired, leaving Michael Carrick and Tom Cleverley to carry the burden.

Brazilian Anderson and Japan’s Shinji Kagawa make up the numbers but are not in the same class as Fabregas.

The Spanish star slipped down the pecking order at Barcelona last season and the Gunners have been linked with a move to bring one of their most revered players back to England.

But as Gunners boss Wenger ups his interest in a deal to sign unsettled United striker Wayne Rooney, it dips heavily into his transfer budget for the summer.

That would weaken his stance in a tug-of-war for Fabregas who may not wish to leave Barcelona but is finding first-team chances limited at present.

He is planning talks over his future with Barca boss Tito Vilanova in the next few days.

Moyes is also keen on returning to former club Everton to sign central defender Phil Jagielka.
