Liverpool, Man Utd launch battle for £25M Chelsea playmaker Cesc Fabregas

Published on: 03 May 2017

Liverpool and Manchester United are being linked with a shock move for Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

The Sun says Kop boss Jurgen Klopp has triggered a tug of war by entering the race to offer Chelsea's World Cup-winning midfielder, 29, a fresh start after a season of frustration.

And Fabregas' old Blues manager Jose Mourinho is also a long-time admirer of the hugely-experienced playmaker and is keen to take him to Old Trafford as part of his summer spending plans.

Fabregas still has two years to run on his deal and has previously declared he is relaxed about the situation.

Both Liverpool and United believe they can convince Chelsea to sell for £25 million.
