Man United fans urge club to sign Monaco midfielder Fabinho this summer

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will be looking to strengthen his midfield options this summer with Michael Carrick retiring and with the futures of Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera potentially in doubt, and Red Devils fans have urged him to sign Monaco’s Fabinho, rated at £36m by Transfermarkt.

Carrick will certainly need to be replaced even if he hasn’t been a regular this season, while Felliani is still yet to agree a new contract with the club despite his current deal expiring in the summer and Herrera has been linked with a move to AC Milan.

Mourinho could choose to play three midfielders next term to give Paul Pogba more attacking freedom, and the Brazilian would certainly fit the bill while he is also able to play at right-back as well.

Man United supporters were quick to have their say on the 24-year-old, who scored in his side’s 4-0 win against Dijon on Friday night, and while one labelled him as “perfect for Manchester United”, another said “Fabinho would be an amazing signing for United”.
