After making his first signing for Manchester United in Uruguayan defender Guillermo Varela, new coach David Moyes is reportedly keen on bringing Barcelona's Cesc Fabregas to Old Trafford.

The 26-year-old Spaniard has been linked to Arsenal despite insisting to stay in Barcelona, and now David Moyes is reportedly keen to bring him to Old Trafford as there are possibilities of Wayne Rooney leaving the club.

Manchester United are said to be willing to place a £40m bid for Cesc Fabregas, reported the Metro

Meanwhile, Manchester United have officially signed 20-year-old Uruguayan defender Guillermo Varela from Uruguayan club Club Atletico Penarol for an undisclosed fee.

Rumours have it that Manchester United are on the verge of signing Argentine defender Ezequiel Garay for a reported fee of £17 million. It was reported that Garay, who moved to Benfica from Real Madrid, would return to Santiago Bernabeu but Manchester United's new coach David Moyes seems to have convinced him to sign for the club.

It is also reported that Moyes is keen to bring back Cristiano Ronaldo who left for Spanish giants Real Madrid four years ago. Manchester United are prepared to offer £65million plus a player to land Ronaldo, 28, who is still a hero with the United faithful, according to a report by The Sun.

Other players linked with the Red Devils include Yohan Cabaye and Kevin Strootman.

Meanwhile, Wayne Rooney, 27, who has been sidelined ever since Robin van Persie joined Manchester United, has reportedly placed a transfer request to Sir Alex Ferguson. He could well leave Old Trafford after nine years if the new coach David Moyes fails to convince him in the coming weeks.

Several clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich have reportedly shown interest in signing the England striker if Manchester United give green signal for his exit.
