Man United ponder making Chelsea star Mourinho’s next signing – report

Manchester United are interested in signing Cesc Fabregas from Chelsea, according to reports

Manchester United are considering a summer transfer swoop to sign Cesc Fabregas from Chelsea this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is claiming that Jose Mourinho is monitoring Fabregas’ situation at Chelsea as the Blues prepare for life under new manager Antonio Conte.

Mourinho was the man who brought Fabregas to Chelsea from Barcelona back in the summer of 2014.

Now in charge of United, Mourinho is eagerly waiting to see if Fabregas will be part of new manager Conte’s plans at Stamford Bridge next season, according to the same story.

Mourinho has already moved quickly to strengthen his squad at Old Trafford by bringing in defender Eric Bailly, striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan this summer.

And it remains to be seen whether Mourinho will further bolster his squad ahead of his first season in charge at Old Trafford.
