David Moyes this morning confirmed that Manchester United have put in an improved £30million bid in for Cesc Fabregas, but FC Barcelona will await the appointment of a new coach until they respond to the bid.
The new fresh bid was sent over to the Spanish giants over the weekend, £30million plus add ons for Fabregas, who is currently on around £100,000 a week, will likely be offered a bumper pay rise if he does decide to come to Manchester.
Speaking in Yokohama this morning, David Moyes said:
”My understanding is that Ed’s [Woodward, United’s executive vice chairman] had a response and he spoke with them.
“I think we made a second offer but Ed is dealing with that personally, rather than me.
“When you’re interested in good players you want to give it every opportunity to materialise and I’ll do that. I hope things can continue and move forward.
“At this moment in time I can only tell you that Ed Woodward is working hard trying to make the deals happen. We can only hope that some of them fall into place shortly.”
The location of Ed Woodward is unknown, but one thing is for sure, Manchester United are working hard on trying to improve the midfield after narrowly losing out on Thiago Alcatara.
