Manchester United interested in signing Monaco defender Fabinho – report

by Tanveer Arayan

Manchester United are interested in signing Monaco defender Fabinho this summer, according to reports.

The club are allegedly interested in signing a specialist in his position and the Brazilian international is said to be available for a £22 million transfer.

Gianluca Di Marzio has previously claimed Fabinho’s agent Jorge Mendes has already tried to manoeuvre his move to Old Trafford.

He spent a loan spell at Real Madrid in 2013 and the Portuguese boss looks to be interested in bringing him to Man United.

Jose Mourinho has already secured the services of Eric Bailly in defence and a move for Fabinho could come as a surprise after the club signed Matteo Darmian last season.

Darmian was in spectacular form when he first moved to Old Trafford but he hasn’t been able to cement his place on the side which has resulted in Antonio Valencia regularly starting ahead of him.

The Portuguese boss will be looking to build a solid defence and the acquisition of Fabinho would help add depth to United’s squad as they look to challenge for the Premier League title and qualify for the Champions League.
