23-year-old defensive midfielder-cum-right back Fabinho could well be the third signing of the summer for Manchester United.

Next stop Manchester United?

O Jogo journalist Bruno Andrade originally claimed United were on the verge of landing the Ligue 1 champion midfielder.

Manchester United are closing in on their second and third signings of the summer following the arrival of Victor Lindelof as the club's first acquisition ahead of next season.

Jose Mourinho has cooled his interest in Monaco's Fabinho in favour of his former player, whom he believes would perfectly complement Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera in the centre of the pitch.

According to him, Fabinho's move to Manchester United is a "done deal" and an official announcement over the club switch is being held up because the player is on holiday.

Giulianelli wrote on Twitter: "Fabinho to Manchester United, done deal".

Tavares then liked the post, before deleting all evidence of her action, prompting eagle-eyed United supporters to assume the versatile Brazilian is on his way.

With The Sun reporting that United will give up on Fabinho, it's suggested that the focus will switch to Matic with Mourinho very familiar with the Serbian global as he played an important role for him during his second stint at Stamford Bridge.

The 29-year-old was a pivotal figure this past season for Antonio Conte's side as they won the Premier League title, but it seems as though he could be on the move.
