Monaco star confirms he would welcome move to Man United

Monaco star confirms he would welcome move to Man United

Monaco midfielder Fabinho says he would be tempted by an offer from Manchester United this summer. "We like Manchester United and the work of [Jose] Mourinho, but we have a little soft spot for City", Fabinho's father Joao told French television programme Telefoot, as quoted by Sky Sports.

Fabinho was asked how he would handle an approach from United on Brazilian TV show Esporte Interativo (transcript via The Independent).

Fabinho previously played under the Portuguese coach during Mourinho's spell in charge of Real Madrid before he moved to Ligue 1 side AS Monaco in 2013.

"I would first talk to my agent, Monaco too, to decide everything right, but it's a great club".

Johnson says "the Russians will be back" and possibly other "bad cyber actors", too, to meddle in future elections. Johnson said initial reaction from state officials to the designation "ranged from neutral to negative".

He would become United's second signing of the summer after Swedish center-back Victor Lindelof joined from Benfica for £31 million ($39 million).

The United boss is expected to be extremely active in the transfer market this summer as he looks to build a squad capable of competing in the Premier League and Champions League next season.

He has given a list of targets to the club's vice chairman Ed Woodward, which is also believed to include a forward to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the team's top scorer last season who was released in May. He scored 22 goals in 47 matches in all competitions last season.

There is hope, however, that if Chelsea can secure Bakayoko from Monaco, Antonio Conte could allow Matic to move to Old Trafford to be reunited with Mourinho.
