United may be made to wait, however, with Barcelona searching for a new head coach after Tito Vilanova stepped down due to ill health last week.
Before stepping down, Vilanova told the Spanish media that Fabregas had indicated he wanted to stay at Barcelona, as Jay Jaffa of Goal.com reported.
But Moyes remains determined to land his man, as his second confirmed bid for the 26-year-old indicated.
When you're interested in good players, you want to give it every opportunity to materialize—and I'll do that.
I hope things can continue and move forward. At this moment in time, I can only tell you that (Manchester United chief executive) Ed Woodward is working hard trying to make the deals happen. We can only hope that some of them fall into place shortly.
United's interest in Fabregas comes as little surprise when you watch a video clip of the player's best moments with Barcelona last season.
The midfielder is a potent threat with his precise passing and vision—particularly around the penalty area—and can score goals himself, as Barca and Arsenal supporters will testify.
Fabregas also possesses the ability to dictate the tempo of a game from midfield, and only a perceived lack of pace can count against him.
But Manchester United supporters can judge for themselves by watching the video clip attached to this article.
Is Fabregas worth £30 million? This highlight reel would appear to indicate a positive response.
