Manchester United have been linked with countless players in the months gone by, and with the transfer window now closer than ever, the list seems to be getting bigger everyday.

The latest name added in there seems to be one that is more of a certainty than just a rumour, though, as it comes from ​Italian Journalist Emanuele Giulianelli.

The so-called transfer expert lists Gazzetta dello Sport, WhoScored, FIFA Weekly and The Sun as part of his impressive CV, and has once again created huge gossip among football lovers and predictors, by claiming that Fabinho has sensationally agreed to join the Red Devils.

As confirmed on his official Twitter account, Emanuele mentioned that the deal will become official as early as in the coming two weeks, once the midfielder returns from his current vacation.



Fabinho was an impressive and vital figure during AS Monaco’s Ligue 1 winning 2016-17 season, as his versatility to play in defensive and attacking positions in the middle of the park was a tough deal for opponents to handle.

Jose Mourinho is currently digging deep into the market to reel in quality players for next season, as he prepares to battle it out for the Premier League and Champions League titles, and hence, adding the former Real Madrid man, who scored 11 goals last season, might prove to be a hugely significant and wise decision.

The Italian journalist was apparently the first person to break out the Mustafi to Arsenal news last year, and can hence be trusted with his information, which might be excellent news for United fans.
