Monaco defender Fabinho admits he’s always been interested in playing in the Premier League amid massive links with a summer move to Manchester United.
He played under Jose Mourinho during his time in charge at Real Madrid and made his debut at Los Blancos in one of the the Portuguese’s final games in charge at the Bernabeu.
The 23-year-old has since progressed into one of Europe’s most exciting attacking full-backs, and his father has already confirmed his son held talks with Man United representatives.
Speaking about a potential move, Fabinho refused to rule out a move with his former boss.
“I have a contract until 2021,” he said.
“The Premier League is a league that interests me and maybe one day I will come and play here.
“My objective is to get to a club with the dimension of Manchester United – I have no clue if one day I’ll be a United player, but I’ll keep on working so it stops being a rumour and becomes reality.
“I know my name was linked with more than one English club but I am happy at Monaco at the moment.”
He’s set to be in Manchester as he takes part in Monaco’s Champions League last-16 first leg with Manchester City.
With Antonio Valencia in remarkable form at Old Trafford and Jose Mourinho claiming the Ecuadorian is one of the best in his position around the world, it remains to be seen if a deal will materialise.
