Barcelona midfielder Fabregas has told Manchester United not to bother pursuing him again when the transfer window reopens in January, reports Antony Kastrinakis of The Sun.
The former Arsenal star was openly pursued by Old Trafford boss David Moyes during the summer transfer window, with offers of £30 million and £35 million rejected by the Camp Nou club.
But Fabregas, 26, insists he never spoke to United and would not consider a move away from Barcelona even if his wages were trebled.
Meanwhile, Neil Custis of The Sun reports that another United summer target, Herrera, will not be heading to Old Trafford if the Spanish club are messed around again.
United's move for the 24-year-old ended in farce on deadline day, as Custis reports, and Athletic may now even offer the player a new deal that will see the release clause raised to £35 million from £30.5 million.
However, Simon Jones of the Daily Mail claims that the midfielder is open to a January offer from United.
Henry Winter of the Daily Telegraph says United are mystified at the criticism aimed at the club after the transfer deadline passed.
