Monaco star Fabinho tempted by move to Manchester United

Monaco defender Fabinho celebrates his goal against Manchester City

Monaco midfielder Fabinho has admitted he would be tempted by a move to Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho is in the market for a defensive midfielder this summer and has been linked with a move for the versatile 23-year-old, who can also play at right-back.

The United boss is familiar with Fabinho, having given him his debut for Real Madrid at the end of the 2013 season in a 6-2 victory against Malaga. The pair also share the same agent in Jorge Mendes.

During a live television interview, the Brazilian international smiled when asked whether he would be keen to move to Old Trafford, if the opportunity were to arise.

"It's a tempting invitation," he told Esporte Interativo. "I would first talk to my agent, Monaco too, to decide everything right.

"But it's a great club, sure enough, I would think well about it."
