Former Manchester United manager David Moyes:”We were close to signing Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas”

Moyes made an attempt to sign Cesc when he was with Barcelona.

“We were very close to Cesc Fabregas,” said Moyes.

“We had spoken with him and we were thought to be very close, but unfortunately it did not happen.

“At the time, United were always in the top four and we had so many top players, I’m sure they will come back to compete at the highest levels,” he added.
