Manchester United target Fabinho has responded to rumours linking him with a summer switch to Old Trafford.
The Monaco midfielder emerged as player Jose Mourinho was interested in a few weeks ago. And recent reports in Italy claimed a deal had been struck between the two clubs.
Fabinho played a key role in Leonardo Jardim’s league winning side last season. Having made the transition from right-back to centre-midfield, the Brazilian flourished in a pairing with Tiemoue Bakayoko.
The tough tackling 23-year-old made 50 appearances in all competitions last season, as Monaco reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.
Appearing on Esporte Interativo , Fabinho was asked what he would say if United came knocking.
With the midfielder’s face lighting up, he said: “It’s a tempting invitation. I would first talk to my agent, Monaco too, to decide everything right. But it’s a great club, sure enough I would think well about it.”
