Manchester United have made a second bid for Barcelona and Spain midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

United confirmed last Monday that they had made a first offer for the former Arsenal star, and manager David Moyes said at a press conference in Yokohama today that a second offer had been lodged.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward returned to the UK ahead of schedule last Wednesday to carry out some urgent transfer business, and Moyes confirmed today: "As I understand it, Ed had a response (to the first offer). We have made a second offer but Ed is dealing with it rather than me."
