Juventus make contact with Manchester United target Fabinho – report

by Leo Nieboer

Juventus have made contact with Manchester United target Fabinho as they seek to find a replacement for Dani Alves, according to reports from Italy.

The Monaco midfielder, who can also feature as a full-back, has reportedly pin-pointed Man United as his first choice destination, although other reports have suggested that Jose Mourinho will not make a move for the Brazilian this summer.

Juventus are in search of a new full-back after it was confirmed Alves would leave during this window and have already made contact with Man United over the availability of Matteo Darmian as a potential replacement.

And according to Italian outlet Calcio Mercato, the Old Lady will now seek to land Fabinho in the coming weeks.

The 23-year-old has been an indomitable force under Leonardo Jardim, and indeed a loyal servant to a club constantly changing but now moving inexorably in the right direction.

He has admitted in the past that a move to Old Trafford would be hard to turn down; even his father has thrown himself into the mix by advocating a move to the Premier League.

But with a litany of clubs lining up to secure the Brazilian’s signature, his next destination remains very much up in the air.
