Cesc Fabregas was the top-target for the newly appointed Manchester United manager David Moyes. The player has revealed today that he would have never moved back to England.
United made two offers for Fabregas of around £30-35 million, but both the offers were rejected by Barcelona.
However, Fabregas has said that he would have never returned to England to play for a Premier League side.
Cesc Fabregas told the Sun: “I would not have moved for double the money. Nor triple. No.
“United never spoke with me. Obviously when a club wants you they have to do it with the club and they don’t necessarily have to speak to the player.”
The Spanish international admitted that he took a pay-cut to join FC Barcelona from Arsenal.
“I’ve paid out of my pocket to play for Barca. I earned more at Arsenal. There are dreams and this was mine since I was a child.”
Fabregas had come through the ranks of the Barcelona youth academy from where Arsenal saw him and signed him. However, he joined Barcelona again in 2011.
David Moyes was also interested in signing Thiago Alcantra but the Spanish midfielder joined Bayern Munich. Eventually, Moyes signed Marouane Fellaini.
