Officially Confirmed: Man Utd In Transfer Talks With €40m-rated Real Madrid Flop

Manchester United have spoken to Monaco defender Fabinho about a possible transfer to Old Trafford, according to his father.

United were linked with a move for the Brazilian, who can play at right-back and in midfield, in the summer.

Jose Mourinho has used Antonio Valencia at right-back this season and extended the Ecuadorian’s contract last month.

But he knows Fabinho from their time together at Real Madrid.

And the 23-year-old’s father, Joao, has revealed there have already been discussions with United, as well as interest from Manchester City, Arsenal and Barcelona.

He said: “We have been in talks with Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal and approached by Barcelona.

“We like Manchester United and Mourinho’s work, but we have a soft spot for Manchester City.”

The €40.8m-rated versatile Brazil international, who failed to make an impact at Satniago Bernabeu, has been huge for Monaco this season –  made 35 appearances in all competitions and bagged seven goals.
