Manchester United are not deterred by the setback in their pursuit of Monaco’s Fabinho, as the Red Devils are preparing a handsome transfer offer.
PSG have entered the race to sign Fabinho, thus complicating Manchester United’s equation for the Brazilian midfielder. Their €40m + €5m add-ons bid is higher than what the Europa League winners offered around 10 days ago, but United are not backing out – not yet.
It’s worth noting that Monaco have declined offers from both interested clubs, as they don’t want to let go of their star players anymore.
Having sold Bernardo Silva, Nabil Dirar, and Germain already, Monaco are afraid that all their star players would be lured away by big clubs across the world, as players like Fabinho, Lemar, Mbappe and Bakayoko have all been approached by a number of clubs already.
Meanwhile, United are excited with the fact that Monaco would prefer to sell Fabinho to a foreign club over their direct rivals.
Anticipating the situation, Jose Mourinho is now ready to match PSG’s bid for the Brazilian international, reports Corriere dello Sport. The Italian newspaper believes the versatile youngster is more likely to head to England.
Manchester United have talks ongoing for signing Alvaro Morata, Matic, and Fabinho, but none of those deals have been finalized yet. It is expected that Jose Mourinho will now push through the deals to get them wrapped up before his side heads to the US for their preseason tour this week.
