Manchester United  have been linked with signing Monaco defender Fabinho as they continue their impressive transfer business this summer.

Reports in France stemming from newspaper Le Parisien, reported online by Footmercato among others, claim the Red Devils have already reached out to try and do a deal.

Fabinho is represented by Jorge Mendes, also Jose Mourinho's agent, which gives United an immediate leg up in negotiations.

The defender is just 22-years-old and played alongside Anthony Martial at Monaco before the striker's move to Old Trafford.

He has also experience facing new United striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who dominated Ligue 1 last season.

Fabinho plays predominantly as a right-back, and his arrival would ask questions over Matteo Darmian and Antonio Valencia's respective futures at United.

Jose Mourinho's earlier comments about not wishing to pick players out of position already indicates that Valencia's spell at right-back could be over.

Fabinho can also play in midfield is required and at centre-back, adding to his versatility, and while Paul Pogba is likely a bigger priority, snapping up the Monaco defender would be a useful addition.
