David Moyes has confirmed that Manchester United have made a second bid for Barcelona midfielder Cesc Fabregas.

Moyes told a news conference in Yokohama today that a second offer has been made for Fabregas.

The new bid is believed to be around 30million for the former Arsenal star.

"As I understand it, Ed had a response [to the first bid]," said Moyes at a press conference in Yokohama.

"We have made a second offer but Ed is dealing with it rather than me."

The Scot added: "When you're interested in good players you want to give it every opportunity to materialise and I'll do that. I hope things can continue and move forward.

"At this moment in time I can only tell you that Ed Woodward is working hard trying to make the deals happen. We can only hope that some of them fall into place shortly."

United had a first offer of around 26million rejected by Barcelona last week.

The pressure is on new manager Daivd Moyes to make his first meaningful signing this summer.
