Monaco defender Fabinho has opened up about interest from Manchester United during the summer transfer window.
Jose Mourinho handed the then 19-year-old a debut for the first-team in 2013, but he claimed there was no concrete interest for a reunion.
He has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford with the Portuguese boss allegedly weighing up whether to meet Monaco’s £25million asking price for his services.
Speaking about his situation, he is focused solely on Monaco’s challenge for the French league title.
“There was something with Manchester [United], I think there was an interest but nothing concrete,” he said.
“I am settled in Monaco, we have made a good start to the season and I am focused on them.”
It goes without saying that having someone of his ability would easily boost our current squad and as he shares the same agent as Mourinho, there is a big chance of signing him.
He is highly-versatile and offers attributes both defensively and in pushing forward on the right flank, although he has played in a defensive midfield role for Monaco.
With Antonio Valencia‘s rise at Old Trafford it remains to be seen whether Mourinho would still invest in the Brazilian’s services.
