Manchester United are still firmly in discussions to sign AS Monaco midfielder Fabinho and he remains a priority for Jose Mourinho this summer, reports from RMC say tonight.
Mohamed Bouhafsi says that there is not yet an agreement between Man United and Monaco for Fabinho but he’s still firmly one of the players who Mourinho wants to sign which will be music to the ears of a lot of fans. Of course, it doesn’t guarantee we’re signing him but pretty much every United fan wants to see Fabinho join the club.

For those who don’t know, Bouhafsi is a French journalist who, like Gianluca di Marzio in Italy, is so spot on with his information about French players and their transfers. He was the journalist responsible for breaking the Anthony Martial to United story and he’s been spot on with so many others since including Fabinho’s AS Monaco teammate Bernardo Silva this summer.
This update has definitely got me excited and backs up a thought I had as soon as the Nemanja Matic to United stories broke earlier today. Why can’t United sign Fabinho and Matic? Unless either stories are wrong, we’re certainly in for both.
