Madrid: Barcelona gave Manchester United a body blow in their quest to sign Cesc Fabregas saying the Spanish midfielder was not for sale.
The reigning Premier League champions Thursday made a 26 million pound bid for the former Arsenal captain but the Catalans rejected saying Fabregas would not leave Camp Nou at any cost, reports Xinhua.
"We can assure you that we won't listen to any offers for Cesc. It is not an option. Cesc is non-transferable," Barcelona vice president Josep Maria Bartome said Friday.
