David De Gea has admitted that he is trying to persuade Barcelona star to join Manchester United.
This Spanish Red Devils stopper is looking to add further Spanish flair to Manchester United that also includes Juan Mata. De Gea during an interview about Cesc Fabregas said,
“I’m trying to get him to come.”
De Gea finds it a tough job as Arsenal have first option on Fabregas if he is to leave Camp Nou. A transfer mishap happened when David Moyes famously failed to land Fabregas last summer. That was an embarrassing campaign for the recently departed ManU boss.
Then Louise van Gaal took the charge and with his attempt the rebuilding club may feel that now is an excellent time to tempt Fabregas back to the Premier League. De Gea needs to spend more time convincing the new boss van Gaal. However, van Gaal isn’t bothered by the Fabregas’ potential availability reportedly.
Van Gaal remains uninterested in Ander Herrera, who continued to crop up during Moyes’ era. The Athletic Bilbao player is outlined as a potential replacement for Cesc Fabregas at Barcelona. The aforementioned report was suggesting that he could be a key in any deal that would see Fabregas move away from his boyhood club for the second time.
If United land Fabregas, plenty will need to be changed for them. Firstly, van Gaal’s mindset will need some alternations if Jones’ article is to be believed. Secondly, the player’s eagerness to join the club. Possibly, Fabregas must favour an Old Trafford move over a return to Arsenal, if the Gunners deem him a worthwhile target.
Arsenal midfield is crammed with similar players and the coach Arsene Wenger needs to prioritise a battling central midfield over a ball-playing type, alongside a world-class forward and right-back. Former Gunners star Ray Parlour questioned whether Fabregas is needed,
”The problem with Fabregas is where do you put him in the team? They have got very similar players to Fabregas—they have Mesut Ozil, Jack Wilshere , Santi Cazorla, —if you bring Fabregas back where do you fit him in? “
De Gea’s attempt of influencing Fabregas may give Manchester United an advantage if a transfer for Fabregas is deemed need. There is no doubt the team need a plethora of new talent across the board. Cesc Fabregas proven talent would be an asset to any team in the world. Though United may favour an imposing physical type instead like Arsenal.
Van Gaal will certainly direct the team towards right direction. But the thing’s for sure is the Dutchman need to land a handful of world-class stars before Manchester United can be taken again.
