Manchester United Transfer News: Jose Mourinho Closing In On Signing Brazilian Fabinho From Monaco
Jose Mourinho is no stranger in seeking talents, especially when he has worked with them, like in the current transfer rumour of signing Brazilian right-winger Fabinho.
Fabinho moved to the Bernabeu in Mourinho’s first season, but only featured for the ‘B’ team.
The Portuguese boss’ replacement, Carlo Ancelotti, sent him on loan to Monaco for two seasons.
Fabinho eventually joined the French side permanently last season where he scored eight times in all competitions.
He has four Brazil caps and was part of the squad for last two Copa America campaigns, but did not feature in either.
Fabinho’s agent is Jorge Mendes, who also represents Mourinho.
United’s current No.1 right-back, Matteo Darmian, could be on his way back to his native Italy.
He has been linked with a move to Napoli, while Juventus were also interested until they signed Alves.
