Manchester United are poised to reignite their interest in signing Fabinho from Monaco after their move for Serge Aurier fell through, according to reports in Spain.

Spanish outlet Don Balon, as quoted by the Daily Star, is reporting that the Red Devils are poised to make a fresh move to sign the 23-year-old Brazilian as Jose Mourinho searches for his fourth signing of the summer.

The same report states that Manchester United have stepped up their interest after a move for Paris Saint-Germain defender Aurier collapsed.

The story also suggests that Monaco would be willing to do a deal with the Red Devils for a fee of around £40.6m (€45m).

Mourinho knows Fabinho well, having given the Brazilian his debut as a Real Madrid player back in 2013, and it is claimed that the Portuguese coach is still a big fan of the player.

Manchester United completed their third signing of the summer last week when they tied up a deal to bring Nemanja Matic to the club from Chelsea.

The Red Devils, who take on Real Madrid in the Uefa Super Cup on Tuesday, have also signed Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku as Mourinho prepares for his second campaign in charge at Old Trafford.
