Cesc Not Moving To Manchester

Spanish football correspondent Guillem Balague says that there is no truth in the rumours linking Cesc Fabregas to Manchester United, at least not now.

New United manager, David Moyes, has reportedly put the Barcelona midfielder at the top of his transfer wish list, but Ballague has told Sky Sports that the Spanish champions categorically will not sell Cesc anytime soon.

Fabregas played only a bit-part at the Camp Nou this season, and grew impatient at his lengthy spells on the bench, and out of position on the field.

Ballague concedes that a move for the ex-Gunners skipper could be more likely in 12 months’ time.

But he says Barca have told him specifically that Fabregas is not for sale.

 "He [Fabregas] is surprised by the rumours that are so strong in England,” Ballague told Sky Sports News.

"The club has definitely told me this evening that they have got no intention whatsoever of selling him.

"His buyout clause, in case anybody is interested, is €200 million, which is a little bit expensive. In any case it is a deterrent for people to come and try to poach him away.

"If anything was going to happen it would be in the future, maybe next year, who knows, but what seems certain is that both the club and himself have decided he will stay at Barcelona for at least one more season."
