Manchester United have contacted Bordeaux about the possibility of signing Brazilian defender Pablo, according to a report in Brazil.

Fox Sport Brasil, as quoted by The Sun, is reporting that Manchester United have enquired about potentially securing a deal to sign the centre-half.

The same article states that Manchester United would have to pay a big transfer fee to secure the 27-year-old’s signature in the January transfer window.

According to the same story, Jose Mourinho views Pablo as a potential signing, while the Red Devils continue to monitor FC Porto defender Eder Militao.

Pablo has scored one goal and has made one assist in 13 appearances in Ligue 1 this season to help Bordeaux climb up to mid table in the French top flight.

The centre-half spent 2017 on loan at Brazilian club Corinthians on loan before the South American defender returned to Bordeaux in January 2018.

Pablo made 15 appearances in the second half of the 2017-18 season to establish himself as a regular in the Bordeaux team.

Manchester United have invested in centre-halves since Mourinho took over the reins of the Old Trafford outfit in May 2016.

The Portuguese head coach has spent £60m on Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof in an attempt to improve his back four.

Manchester United will make the trip to Liverpool FC in the Premier League at Anfield on Sunday evening.
