Manchester United are set to revive their interest in signing Fabinho.
United were linked with right-back earlier in the transfer window, but over time, reports of their interest faded away.
But now, according to Spain based media outlet Marca, the Red Devils have revived their interest in the AS Monaco fullback. Monaco want to be paid a £26m fee to part with the Brazilian, as per the report.
Born in Campinas, Sao Paulo, Fabinho began his career at Fluminese. He was called into the first team match-day squad just once, on 20 May 2012, where he remained an unused substitute in their 1–0 win at Corinthians. He soon left the Brazilian club without making a single appearance.
On 8 June 2012, Fabinho joined Portuguese side Rio Ave on a six-year deal. But after spending one month at Rio Ave, Fabinho joined Real Madrid Castilla on a season-long loan deal.
He was given his Real Madrid debut by current Manchester United manager José Mourinho on 8th May, 2013. He came on for Fabio Coentrao and assisted a goal for Angel di Maria.
In the following transfer window, Fabinho joined AS Monaco on loan, where he also spent the next season. And after two seasons on loan at the French outfit, Fabinho signed permanently for the club until 2019.
And now, it looks like the young defender may be on his way to the Theatre of Dreams, as a replacement for Matteo Darmian.
According to the reliable English news outlet Sky Sports, Manchester United right-back Matteo Darmian is being pursued by Serie A clubs Napoli and Roma.
The Italian arrived at Old Trafford in a £12m move from Serie A club Torino. His spell with the Red Devils had a promising start as he was voted as Manchester United’s player of the month for August by the fans. However, injuries and position changes affected his game, leading to a decline in his form.
