How do you take over from a manager with the stature of Sir Alex Ferguson? David Moyes may look to make a marquee signing to start the ball rolling.
The transfer rumour mill has been in overload since the end of the season but one rumour that is really starting to gain momentum is the possibility of Cesc Fabregas heading to Man Utd. The rumours of a shock £25 million pound for the midfielder would be a real sign of intent from Moyes.
There are a number of reasons for this, Paul Scholes has finally retired and in need of replacing and the sad saga of Darren Fletcher is starting to look like it will not have a happy ending, because of this Moyes is keen to strengthen the midfield.
Very few players have the quality of Fabregas that will truly enhance the united midfield. The one weapon that may convince Fabregas to make the move could be the influence of former Arsenal teammate Robin Van Persie. David Villa is likely to leave Barcelona in the summer in order to be guaranteed first team football ahead of the world cup. Many Spaniards will be thinking the same, Fabregas is no exception. The influence of Van Persie and the desire to hold down a starting place in the star studded Spanish midfield could be the push needed to send the midfielder to the Premier league champions.
Man Utd have long been interested in another Barcelona player Thiago
Fans are already starting to imagine the style of play that could occur under Moyes, and it is looking to be a mouth-watering prospect. This may also be an indication on whether Moyes will opt for a 5 or 4 man midfiled, with Fabregas likely to thrive with more players around him. Could this therefore make Wayne Rooney surplus to requirements as he may struggle to hold down a place as
Fabregas has had good return at Barca, although he has struggled to start matches he has notched up 10 goals in La Liga. The 12 assists would probably interest the united fans more when you have the likes of Van Persie up front. He has also proved he is able to cope with the physicality of the Premier League.
Only time will tell if Fabregas returns to England in a united shirt, if he does he will make a very big contribution.
