Man Utd target claims a move to Old Trafford is "tempting"

Manchester United have moved closer to landing Fabinho from Monaco, after they agreed a fee with the Ligue 1 champions.

The 23-year-old Brazilian global was handed his senior professional debut by Mourinho when they previously worked together at Real Madrid.

It is now claimed that the Portuguese tactician has begun mulling over the players who could replace Rooney as club captain, with a number of different players taking on the responsibility at different points last season.

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

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is reportedly ready to take away the captain's armband from Wayne Rooney if he stays at the club next season.

Unsurprisingly, Manchester United cropped up as a topic and Fabinho was asked what Man United shirt he would wear next season.

United will be keen to bolster their squad this summer with plenty of competition among the top teams and a Champions League campaign to think about.

The Brazilian worldwide made his name as a right-back but excelled in a holding midfield role last season to help Leonardo Jardin's side clinch the Ligue 1 title ahead of PSG.

According to renowned Italian source Corriere dello Sport, the 23-year-old Brazilain worldwide is getting closer to signing for the Red Devils after Monaco agreed a fee worth 40 million euros ($45million) with the British side.

The player himself seems receptive to a move, so the Red Devils would be wise to make an approach for him.

Alvaro Morata, the Real Madrid striker, is among the reported targets.
