MANCHESTER United have revived their bid to sign Cesc Fabregas and thrown a club record £35m on the table, but Barcelona remain adamant that this third offer from Old Trafford will be rejected.

A few days ago, the deal seemed dead in the water with Fabregas happy to stay at the Nou Camp and new boss Gerardo Martino happy to have him.

Martino is sticking to his guns and will dismiss the new offer.

However, David Moyes has clearly made Fabregas his must-have signing this summer and reports suggest that £35m is just the starting point for a series of add-ons which would increase the value of the deal over time.
