Manchester United are ready to make a £52m bid to try and sign Fabinho from Monaco in the January transfer window, according to reports in Italy.

Italian website Calciomercato, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Red Devils are ready to reignite their interest in the midfielder with a bid in the new year.

Manchester United were heavily linked with a move for Fabinho during the summer transfer window but a transfer for the 23-year-old Brazilian failed to materialise.

Now, it appears that the Red Devils could be set to return with an official bid for Fabinho in the summer transfer window.

The same report claims that both Paris Saint-Germain and Juventus are among the other clubs interested in signing Fabinho in the January transfer window.

Manchester United ended up signing three players in the summer transfer window as they completed deals for Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic.

Jose Mourinho, however, made no secret of the fact that he wanted to bring in four players in total last summer but ended up having to settle for three.

Manchester United appointed Mourinho as their new permanent manager to take over from Louis van Gaal back in May 2016.
