Manchester United have upped the stakes in their bid to sign Cesc Fabregas. Manager David Moyes is prepared to break the club’s transfer record after making a new £30million, plus add-ons, offer to lure Fabregas from Barcelona. And Fabregas will be told by United that he can double his £100,000-a-week wages by moving to Old Trafford this summer. The midfielder will consider a switch if Barca accept a bid and is now waiting to see what develops. Fabregas’ Barcelona contract runs to 2016 and includes a £25m ­buy-back clause for his former club Arsenal. Apart from offering Fabregas the chance to take over from Paul ­Scholes, United would also be prepared to put the Spaniard in line with his ex-Arsenal team-mate Robin van Persie and pay him around £200,000-a-week. A Spanish source said: “Manchester United are deadly serious about signing Fabregas and have made a second bid. “It is hard to predict what will happen but one thing is for sure and that is that ­Fabregas could earn a lot more by joining United.
