Monaco star confirms he would welcome move to Man United

Juventus could miss out on Fabinho after the Monaco midfielder admitted Manchester United were "tempting".

The 23-year-old was an integral part of the jigsaw for Monaco last season, making 50 on the way to winning the Ligue 1 title and reaching the Champions League semi-finals.

Fabinho, who can also slot in at right-back, has - like many of his team-mates - been attracting admiring glances from some of European football's biggest clubs.

"It's a tempting invitation", he stated.

The player fuelled these rumours on Thursday night, when he confirmed he would be open to a move to Old Trafford.

Four Sit Atop a Crowded Leaderboard at US Open
Open - one fewer than the number who had done it over the first 116 years of what had been known as the toughest test in golf. Casey overcame a triple-bogey eight at the par-five 14th, his fifth hole, to lift himself into championship contention.

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

Nemanja Matic, whom Mourinho signed for Chelsea is another on United's radar, as it Eric Dier, although he is unlikely to leave Tottenham this summer. Reports that the latter has already verbally agreed personal terms have been dismissed by the club.

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

Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata is a player Mourinho hopes to bring to Old Trafford, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic's injury and impending exit meaning a frontman has become a priority.

Indeed, Fabinho not only boasts the physical qualities United need, but also the mental ones-he's an intelligent and tactically aware footballer and is excellent in both positions.
