Van Persie would welcome Fabregas signing

Robin van Persie has indicated he would like to see former Arsenal teammate Cesc Fabregas join Manchester United.

The Premier League champion lodged a 30 million euro bid for the Barcelona midfielder on Monday, with manager David Moyes hopeful of receiving "good news" regarding the offer in the near future.

When questioned whether he would like to be reunited with Fabregas, Van Persie replied: "Of course, he's a great player."

However, he was quick to underline that he has not been in contact with his former teammate.

Barcelona, meanwhile, maintains Fabregas wants to stay at Camp Nou, but Moyes is keen to strengthen United's central-midfield position after failing to lure Bayern Munich new-boy Thiago Alcantara to Old Trafford ealier in July.

Moyes told The Times: "When I got the job, I was made aware of what could possibly be done to improve things, and signing a midfield player was one that we thought we could possibly add to the squad.

"At the moment that’s probably our priority - to try and add a player in that position."
