Fabinho has spoken out about rumours linking him with Manchester United and said he would be tempted by an offer to play for the club and Jose Mourinho.
Reports from Italy suggested Man United had agreed a €35m fee with AS Monaco for Fabinho and within a few hours of that breaking Fabinho himself has discussed the rumours.
When questioned, Fabinho responded: “An offer from José Mourinho to join Manchester United would be very tempting.”
Fabinho wants it, all of us fans want it and the latest reports suggest a deal has already been agreed with Monaco. I’m trying not to tempt fate but everything feels like it is falling into place with Fabinho.
I really think he could be one of the best signings Mourinho has made if we can push it over the line. We’re in desperate need of a new defensive midfielder and there aren’t many better than Fabinho and he’s got more than that – he’s versatile enough to play at right-back, is mint at penalties and has a good passing range too.
It wouldn’t be a sexy signing like Alvaro Morata but it would be one which balances United’s team out so much. Fabinho clearly would love to join United, here’s hoping the move is completed next week as reports suggest.
