Fabregas 'flattered' by United interest

Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas has revealed he was flattered by Manchester United’s attempts to sign him last summer.

Fabregas, 26, was the subject of three bids from United following David Moyes’ arrival at Old Trafford. However, the move failed to materialise after the Catalan club knocked the offers back.

And the Spain international has spoken to BBC Sport about the interest from United, stating that the prospect of a switch to the Red Devils was on his radar last summer.

“I do follow the Premier League a lot and it’s always flattering when a club like Manchester United talks very well about you and you can see they want you, but I’m going through an amazing moment at Barcelona,” Fabregas said.

“I’m playing every week and I feel very important to the team. I’m very happy right now. This season I have felt more like myself, with more freedom and I’m more secure with the way I like to play.

"It’s not easy when you know you have to convince many fans how good you are and how good you can be for the team. The manager [Gerardo Martino] has trusted me and given me what I needed. I’m probably going through my best spell here.”

Fabregas went on to express his shock at Juan Mata’s move from Chelsea to United last month.

“I was surprised to see Juan move there because I think he has been Chelsea’s best player over the last two years,” he said. “He’s produced some amazing performances as they won the Champions League, Europa League and FA Cup and he scored in the final of the European Championship with Spain.”

Fabregas is relishing the chance of taking on Premier League outfit Manchester City in the Champions League next week, and he insists Barca will not change their style in a bid to combat their opponents’ attacking firepower.

“There is only one way we know how to play football,” he said. “This is keeping the ball, passing it around and trying to create chances. We don’t know how to play any other game. We can’t play long balls, defensive in one half. We don’t know how to do that.

“It is up to them to see if they will come out and pressure us up front, which is a doubt. They will try to counter-attack and this is going to be an exciting tie.”
