Barcelona vice-president Josep Maria Bartomeu has told Manchester United that they will not sell midfielder Cesc Fabregas at any price.
United manager David Moyes revealed that the deal was“ongoing” but the Spanish club insist no offer will be accepted for the 26-year-old.
Bartomeu said: “United’s interest for Cesc Fabregas is obvious, he’s a great player but it does not bother us.
The Premier League champions have failed with two bids for the former Arsenal player, the latest of which is understood to be £30m plus add-ons.
Bartomeu was speaking at new manager Gerardo Martino’s first news conference following his appointment as Tito Vilanova’s replacement.
“I’m not going to involve myself in the club’s accounts, but considering the club has already rejected two offers, I would guess it will reject a third,” Martino said.
