Brazilian Star wants to move, favorite destination is Manchester United

Brazilian star Fabinho wants a move away from Monaco and his preferred destination is Manchester United according to Portuguese outlet O Jogo. Even before this particular report , there have been rumours about Fabinho and Manchester United especially from Brazil.

Manchester United have been in need of a defensive midfielder for a long time and it looks like Mourinho is set to solve it this summer. Other rumoured target is Tottenham’s Eric Dier who as an added bonus is comfortable even at center back. United currently are stocked with central defenders after completing the signing of Victor Lindelof (Read- Scout Report:Victor Lindelof). Although one of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones is expected to leave the club in the summer, both of them might stay because of Marcos Rojo’s long term injury.

A defensive midfielder is crucial to bring the best out of Paul Pogba as the record signing has struggled to match up to the high expectation in the last season. Combined with Ander Herrera, Mourinho can potentially turn United’s weak center into their strongest asset.
