Manchester United manager David Moyes has confirmed the club have made an improved bid for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas.
The Red Devils are believed to have already seen a £30million offer for the Spain international rejected by the Catalan club, who insist the 26-year-old has no intention of leaving in the off-season.
The Premier League champions, though, have now renewed their interest, with Moyes having confirmed United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is busy handling the offer.
“As I understand it, Ed had a response (to the first offer),” Moyes revealed. “We have made a second offer but Ed is dealing with it rather than me.”
Moyes looks determined to bring the former Arsenal captain to Old Trafford, but admits he could be forced to walk away from the potential deal should it consume too much time and energy.
“I think a point does come,” the Scot said. “But when you are interested in good players you want to give it every opportunity to materialise.
“I will hope things will continue to move forward. At this moment in time I can only tell you Ed Woodward is working hard to try and make the deals happen. We hope some of them will fall into place shortly.”
