Monaco star, Fabinho reportedly joins Manchester United for £40m

Manchester United F.C. transfer target Fabinho scores goal in video

According to a report by The Sun, Manchester United have edged past competition to sign Fabinho from AS Monaco after targeting the 23-year-old for a long period of time.

The 28-year-old has always been "desperate" for the move to United, having been linked with the club during his days in the Bundesliga with Wolfsburg, and also nearly exactly fits Jose Mourinho's profile of a hard-working wide attacking player, akin to his ideal for the role, Willian.

The Brazil global scored 12 goals and provided six assists helping Monaco to their first Ligue 1 title in 20 years while they also made the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Son of congressman at scene of shooting, rescued by GOP members
Governor Doug Ducey: "Thoughts and prayers for @ SteveScalise + all affected in senseless event this morning". It has not been announced yet whether or not the game will be postponed or cancelled due to the shooting.

Meanwhile, it could be recalled that Monaco's billionaire owner, Dmitri Rybolovlev, had promised not to stop any of the club's players, if they choose to quit this summer; and Fabinho, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Bernardo Silva and Radamel Falcao had also been touted as potential summer departures from the Stade Louis II. The Brazil worldwide has attracted a lot of interest across Europe with the likes of Real Madrid and Manchester City keeping tabs on the player.

With both Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger having departed last season, Fabinho would be a fantastic replacement to sit deep in midfield and allow Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera to push further forward.

Juventus would be tough to turn down, and would be the choice of officials at Chelsea, however, a betting man would have his money on an Old Trafford move.
