With just days left in this incredible transfer window, Manchester United could yet bring in one more new face as Jose Mourinho assembles a title-winning squad.
Monaco right-back Fabinho has been the subject of interest all summer from the Special One and the deal finally appears to be picking up some pace.
France Football, a reliable source for such news, claims the defender has reached an agreement with the club to leave once the side have secured Champions League qualification. They face Villareal in the second leg of their tie tonight with the principality team 2-1 up from the first meeting.
The report also claims:
“The player remains hell-bent on a move to the Premier League and he is still expected to get that wish before the window shuts.
“Manchester United remain well-positioned, Fabinho remains an absolute priority of José Mourinho, but are not the only Premier League side in the mix.”
With concerns over Matteo Darmian’s ability, an addition at right-back is certainly needed. However, it begs the question, why can’t Timothy Fosu-Mensah be the man to deputise for the resurgent Antonio Valencia. The young Dutchman burst onto the scene last year with a string of massively impressive performances. His importance for the team was best highlighted by the fact that after he was inexplicably hooked away to Spurs, the team conceded three goals in the next eight minutes.
Would Jose Mourinho not consider the talented young star in favour of spending yet more money?
No, of course not.
