De Gea Luring Fabregas To Man Utd?

Manchester United and Spain goalkeeper David De Gea claims he is trying to lure Cesc Fabregas to Manchester.

Fabregas has been catching the interest of clubs across the Premier League since Barcelona neglected to renew his contract.

De Gea, who has been named to Spain's provisional 30-man squad for the World Cup alongside Fabregas, told Spanish broadcaster La Sexta, "I'm trying to get him to come," in regards to his La Furia Roja teammate.

Speculation, however, has been that Fabregas would only leave Barcelona to join his former club, Arsenal. Arsenal and United may also have to battle Manchester City, with the league champions also reportedly joining the fray for Fabregas.

It was previously reported that there is a €40 million (R 570 million) buyout clause in Fabregas' contract at the Blaugrana, and that is the minimum price United, City or Arsenal will have to pay for the Spaniard's signature.

De Gea also noted that he's holding out hope for the fitness of Spain teammate Diego Costa.

"Of course we should wait for Costa, he's a top player. I played alongside him for several years at Atleti and he's really blossomed this year," the 23-year-old added.

"We have to wait and see how he progresses and hopefully he'll be 100%."
