According to Sky Italia's Gianluca Di Marzio, Manchester United are interested in Boca Juniors ace Frank Fabra - but so are Boca Juniors.

New manager Jose Mourinho made his first signing of the summer by landing centre back Eric Bailly from Villarreal last week, and now he'll be looking to turn his attentions elsewhere.

Mourinho may look to bring in another left back, despite United having some options there already; Luke Shaw will be returning from injury soon, Cameron Borthwick-Jackson showed promise in his limited appearances last season, whilst Marcos Rojo can also play there.

Now, Sky Italia's Gianluca Di Marzio reports that United have an interest in signing Boca Juniors star Frank Fabra, who has impressed at Copa America.

Fabra, 25, was on the books with Envigado, Deportivo Cali and Independiente Medellin in his native Colombia before signing for Argentinian giants Boca Juniors.

The left back has starred for Colombia at Copa America this summer, scoring against Costa Rica over the weekend - which appears to have been the trigger for speculation surrounding his future at Boca Juniors.

A pacey, attack-minded left back, Fabra is believed to be attracting interest from United, as well as Mourinho's former employers Chelsea.

If he continues to impress at Copa America, interest will in Fabra's signature is bound to increase - but whether United really need another left back is another matter.

Do you think Manchester United need to sign another left back?
