Fabinho has made Manchester United his first-choice destination in this summer’s transfer window, according to reports in Portugal.

Portuguese newspaper O Jogo, as quoted by Metro, is claiming that the 23-year-old Brazilian midfielder would prefer to join the Red Devils ahead of any other club.

Manchester United have been linked with a host of players in recent days but have thus far only confirmed the signing of defender Victor Lindelof from Benfica this summer.

Fabinho has been touted as a target for Manchester United this summer, with the midfielder having also been linked with a number of other clubs.

However, if the latest reports in Portugal are to be believed, it seems that Fabinho has his heart set on a move to Old Trafford.

Earlier this week, Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli claimed a deal for Fabinho to join the Red Devils had already been concluded.

A move to Manchester United for Fabinho would appear to make some sense, as Jose Mourinho is believed to be on the lookout for a long-term successor for Michael Carrick at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils are on the lookout for a number of new players this summer as Mourinho prepares his team for a return to the Champions League next season.
