Manchester United may have completed four marquee summer signings this season but Jose Mourinho is not yet done when it comes to strengthening the core of his squad.
With only a week left in the transfer window, Jose is still looking to bring players through with defenders being his key focus. One such player in contention is AS Monaco’s right back Fabinho.
According to M.E.N, United are expected to complete Fabinho’s move next week which was further confirmed by the player’s wife.
According to the eagle eyed social media followers, Rebeca Tavares followed Manchester United’s Instagram account last night to further fuel the speculations over Fabinho’s move to Old Trafford.
Despite spending over £150million this summer, some of the pundits think that United’s right back slot is still contentious as compared to the other areas which might prompt Mourinho to make a late bid for Fabinho.
However, M.E.N understand that Jose has been told by the United board to clear up his squad before he will be allowed to make any new signings.
Marcos Rojo, Matteo Darmian and Phil Jones are said to be on their way out of Old Trafford which would then enable United to bring in Fabinho and perhaps Jose Fonte, who is also linked with a move this summer.
Chances of Fabinho signing for Man United – 3.5/5
Although social media following is not the biggest hint in the world for player’s next destination but Fabinho is linked with United for a considerable amount of time now.
He is 22-year-old which not only fits the age but certainly fit the profile as well. He will cost United in the region of €20-25m but Marcos Rojo’s rumoured move in the other direction could bring down the eventual price for Fabinho’s transfer to Manchester United.
