According to @julien_mgrt, Fabinho will only join Manchester United if he rejects a new contract at AS Monaco and leaves. Julien is very well informed in regards to AS Monaco’s transfer dealings.
This news comes after reports of Manchester City not being interested in signing him, as well as Juventus looking at signing Axel Witsel or Steven N’Zonzi, indicating they have also dropped their interest in Fabinho.
Fabinho would cost Manchester United €45m-50m – a fee that is well justified in the modern day market of football, especially with players with less quality going for more.
José Mourinho was recently in Monaco for the Grand Prix, with it being rumoured he was also there for transfer negotiations. It was said Mourinho was there for Bernardo Silva, who has since joined rivals Manchester City. Mourinho awarded Fabinho with his Real Madrid debut when the pair were at the club, showing José’s fondness of the Brazilian.
