Fabinho Linked With Premier League Giants
Manchester United are planning to bid for Monaco right-back Fabinho, according to several reports.
According to Get French Football News, Fabinho is keen on a move to the Premier League this summer, and Old Trafford is his most likely destination.
The Brazilian is reported to have had a verbal agreement with Monaco, which stated that the player would be allowed to leave the club if they managed to qualify for the Champions League.
Having beaten Villareal 1-0, the club’s condition has been met, and Fabinho will now look to make his move and fulfill his side of the deal.
United have a good amount of options at right-back, with Antonio Valencia, Matteo Darmian and Timothy Fosu-Mensah all competing for a place in the full back position.
The English club has already signed the four primary targets that Mourinho wished for, and hence, the signing of Fabinho would be deemed supplementary.
Fabinho is still only 22 and has a lot to learn, but is currently one of the most highly rated youngsters in the world.
The defender had an incredible season for Monaco last year, starting 48 games for the club in all competitions, and even managing to notch up 8 goals and 4 assists.
He was also linked with a move to United last summer, when Louis van Gaal was in charge, but the club never made a serious attempt to sign the right-back.
According to reports, United are also chasing Fabinho’s Brazilian compatriot Marquinhos. Chelsea are favourites to sign the defender, but the Old Trafford outfit are still very much in the mix for the want-away PSG star.
