Contact made: Man United’s 12-goals target could seal shock move to PSG

June 27, 2017

According to the L’Equipe, Paris Saint Germain’s sporting director Antero Henrique has made contact with the agent of Fabinho as talks with Manchester United drag on.

The League 1 giants are desperate to sign the versatile Brazilian from their Ligue 1 rivals Monaco after a series of impressive performances from the 23-year-old last season.

PSG’s approach could prove to be a massive blow for the Red Devils, who are still holding talks with Fabinho’s entourage as they look to secure a deal.

United head coach Jose Mourinho is keen to build a side he hopes will challenge for the Premier League title next term and considers Fabinho’s versatility as a major selling point.

However, according to RMC Sport, neither Man United nor PSG have agreed a fee with AS Monaco, with the saga set to drag on.

It’s already been a busy start to the summer at Old Trafford, with Nemanja Matic set to join the club after the arrival of Swedish defender Victor Lindelof.

But with a Champions League season coming up, as well as the need to challenge for the title, United’s Portuguese manager is still desperate to recruit more high-quality players – with Fabinho fitting the bill.
