Man United expected to win race to sign Chelsea star

Manchester United had expected to complete the signing of Cesc Fabregas, before he made the switch to Chelsea instead, as revealed by former manager David Moyes.

Fabregas joined Chelsea 18 months ago, and went onto play a huge role in helping the Blues to lift the Premier League trophy last term.

Arsenal were claimed to have turned down the chance to re-sign their former captain, but it has now emerged that then-manager of Manchester United David Moyes, was sure Fabregas was becoming a Red Devil.

Chelsea then completed a £27 Million deal to sign the Spanish international, and went onto lift the trophy with his new side in his debut term.
