Manchester United still eyeing Fabregas

Jul 20, 2013, 04:28 IST | PA Sport

Manchester United manager David Moyes is hoping to hear some positive news about his pursuit of Cesc Fabregas within the next couple of days.

As United’s week-long stay in Sydney took them to a public training session at the Allianz Stadium, which attracted more support than the seasonal average of any side that plays there regularly, executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward set to work on the urgent transfer business that demanded his early return to Europe.

Given Woodward was due back in the UK tomorrow anyway, it was a significant move on his part which suggested a major piece of business was in the offing.

And, speaking at a press conference to preview today’s encounter with the A-League All Stars at ANZ Stadium, Moyes for the first time endorsed the fact United had made a bid for Fabregas.

“I couldn’t tell you exactly,” said Moyes, when asked for a progress update. “I am in contact with the chief executive who has been dealing with it. I will hopefully know a little bit more in the next day or so.”
