Insider claims this player will be Man United’s next signing

Manchester United are keen on signing Fabinho from Monaco, according to Emanuele Giulianelli

Manchester United are keen to make Fabinho their next summer signing, according to Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli.

The Red Devils have been linked with a host of players since Jose Mourinho took over at United back in May.

Mourinho has already moved quickly to sign three players this summer as he prepares for his first season in charge at Old Trafford, with defender Eric Bailly, striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic and playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan all arriving at the club.

United are believed to be on the lookout for further reinforcements and have been heavily linked with a transfer swoop to sign Paul Pogba from Juventus in recent days.

But Italian reporter Giulianelli is claiming that Monaco 22-year-old right-back Fabinho could well be on his way to United this summer.

However, Giulianelli also stresses that United are likely to have to sell some players to fund the deal.

United moved quickly to appoint Mourinho as the club’s new manager back in May following the sacking of Louis van Gaal.
