Fulham wonderkid urged to turn down Man Utd interest in favour of Liverpool move

By | March 21, 2022

Fabio Carvalho should turn down the advances of Manchester United and sign for Liverpool, according to Noel Whelan.


The former Leeds United attacker, speaking to Football Insider, stated he’d be “very surprised” if the 19-year-old playmaker chose to join the 20-time English champions over the Merseysiders.

Two weeks ago the Daily Star reported that the Red Devils have sent scouts to watch him on three occasions and are aiming to gazump the Reds with a summer bid.

The report states Jurgen Klopp’s side have already agreed on a fee for the ace with Fulham after the two sides ran out of time to seal a January deal.

An Anfield source has told Football Insider that new discussions are being held this month with the Cottagers over a deal for the star.

Whelan claimed a Liverpool switch would prove “a much more healthy atmosphere to be playing your football in”.

“That would be very cheeky from Man United but if I was Carvalho, I’d much rather play for Liverpool than Man United – that’s just how it is,” Noel said.

“There are a lot of deep-rooted problems at Man United which need to be resolved, and that starts at the top.

“When you look at how Liverpool are run as a club, everything’s in place and it’s a very tight ship – which is a much more healthy atmosphere to be playing your football in.

“Liverpool have come in and shown interest in the player, he was close to joining. I’d be very surprised if he were to turn his nose up at joining them in favour of a move to Man United.“
