According to the Sun, Manchester United and Liverpool could be at the centre of a massive transfer tussle this summer as both clubs plot a sensational move for Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
With two years to run on his current deal, the 29-year-old is also said to have attracted interest from the likes of Bayern Munich, AC Milan and the Chinese Super League, though Reds chief Jurgen Klopp is understood to have ‘triggered a tug of war’.
Experience and quality. Both in abundance. The former Arsenal and Barcelona star demonstrated his wonderful ability to find space with a stunning assist for Willian in the recent 3-0 win over Everton and remains one of the elite passers in Europe.
Indeed, while he’s been suggested as a potential replacement for Coutinho, the World Cup winner would be an excellent option to replace Michael Carrick at Old Trafford.
Pulling strings from deep, his assured presence next to industrious compatriot Ander Herrera and world-record man Paul Pogba would give United a perfectly balanced midfield.
