Manchester United are still in the hunt for Cesc Fabregas with manager David Moyes claiming a move for the Barcelona midfielder is “ongoing”, according to the BBC.

United have already seen two offers for the Spain international rejected, the last of which is believed to have been a bid of £30 million plus add-ons.

Barcelona have previously warned United off Fabregas, and are reluctant to sell the 26-year-old.

However, Moyes isn’t willing to give up the fight just yet, and told a press conference in Osaka that “things are ongoing”.

United made their first move for Fabregas on July 15, and tabled an opening offer of £25 million for the former Arsenal skipper.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward then flew home from the club’s pre-season tour to negotiate the deal and soon after, the second bid was made.

Meanewhile, Moyes has confirmed Robin van Persie has recovered from a thigh injury he sustained during United’s recent friendly against Yokohame Marinos and that the Dutchman will be available for tomorrow’s encounter with Cerezo Osaka.

United are currently in Japan as part of their pre-season tour of Australia and Asia, and earlier this week crashed to their second pre-season defeat in three games after falling to a 3-2 defeat to Marinos.
