Manchester United displayed interest in signing Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona during the summer transfer window but neither player were willing on making a move away from the Catalan club.
The Premier League side initially tried to secure the services of Thiago Alcantara but after failing on actually signing him, they attempted to get the midfield duo of Andres Iniesta and Cesc Fabregas.
Rumors emerged claiming that Fabregas was tempted on moving to Manchester United but taking into consideration that he is playing in the country where he was born and bred and the fantastic season that Barcelona are experiencing it seems extremely hard to believe him making a move away from the Catalan club.
Manchester United have been trying to add into their main squad player that can freshen up the team as they already have a number of players that are reaching the end of their contracts and some of them even the end of their career’s considering the elevated age.
So it makes sense that the current champions of the Premier League are busy searching for players that might be available in the winter transfer window but even for a world renowned club as Manchester United, some players are out of their reach even for them.
It seems highly unlikely that Fabregas will be leaving Barcelona anytime soon as a matter of fact he recently expressed his intentions of remaining with the Spanish club until the day he retires and the only other club he would consider moving to is Arsenal.
“It would be a dream come true to retire with Barca,” he told fans on Facebook. I will continue to work very hard to make that happen’’.
“Playing here is a dream and means everything to me because I have always been a huge fan.”
