Man U confident of bagging Fabregas despite Arsenal `conflict of interest`

London: Former Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas has revealed to friends that the Gunners would be his natural choice if he returns to England, even as Manchester United boss Moyes and his management are confident of bringing him to Old Trafford.

According to the Mirror, Fabregas also revealed that his first priority was to stay at Barcelona, but his attitude would change if the Catalans accepted a bid from United.

Arsenal has a buy-back option on Fabregas and Barcelona must inform them if they accept a bid from another club, the report said.

The report added that Gunners boss Arsene Wenger still remains close to the player with regular contact between them but the Premier League Champions insist that the player is ready to return to England with them.

Manchester United have already made a 26 million pounds bid for him and are prepared to go even higher, the report further said.
