United Quest For Cesc "Ongoing"

Manchester United still have not given up hope of signing Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona.

Rumours persist that former Arsenal skipper Fabregas is considering his future at the Camp Nou, even though the Spanish champions have rejected two United bids for his services and insist he is not for sale.

With the resignation of Tito Vilanova, new manager ‘Tata’ Martino is sure to have his own ideas, and Fabregas could well be waiting to hear how he fits in.

United have made Fabregas one of their top priorities of the transfer window, and even though manager David Moyes has said they would move on if their efforts to sign him were rebuffed, he now admits United’s hunt for Cesc is still in motion.

Asked about the English champions’ quest to sign Fabregas, Moyes told a press conference in Japan: “It’s still ongoing.”

Meanwhile, Alex Song- who followed Fabregas to Barca from Arsenal- is convinced that the Spanish international will not be making the move back to the English Premier League.

"I did not speak with him but I know Cesc is 100 per cent here,” Song said.

"He loves Barcelona, he loves the club. He will stay here next season and give 100 per cent because I know him very well and he'll want to fight. He's focused on the club.

"He wants just to give his best for Barcelona. He's from Barcelona, he loves Barcelona and he'll want to start the season to show what he can do.

"People are talking and talking, but we know he is focused here and ready to start the season.

"He's enjoying a holiday with his family and I'm sure he wants just to come back here.

"It's my own opinion but I know he will stay here, 100 per cent."
