Man United transfers: De Gea urges Fàbregas to join Red Devils
Man United transfers: David De Gea says he would be delighted to see Cesc Fàbregas join him at Old Trafford this summer
David De Gea admits he would be delighted to see Cesc Fàbregas join him at Manchester United this summer.
The Red Devils are understood to have had a £26m bid for the Spain playmaker rejected by Barcelona this week as new boss David Moyes looks to bolster his squad ahead of the new season.
And despite Barcelona’s insistence that the player is not for sale, De Gea says that he would be thrilled if the Premier League champions manage to lure the 26-year-old to Old Trafford ahead of the new season.
“It would be great if Cesc came here,” De Gea told the Daily Mirror.
“It would be great to have more Spanish players at Manchester United.
“He’s a great player; very skilful, knows how to win things. You always want those type of players in your team.”
Fàbregas, who spent eight years at Arsenal, became the Gunners’ youngest player when he faced Rotherham United in the League Cup aged 16 years and 177 days in October 2003.
