Manchester United have reportedly revived their interest in signing Fabinho from AS Monaco, according to Spanish outlet Don Balon.
United are poised to make a fresh approach to sign the Brazil international as Jose Mourinho prepares for his second spell in charge at Old Trafford.
The Ligue 1 champions AS Monaco would be willing to do a deal with the Old Trafford outfit for a fee of around £40.6m (€45m).
The same report claims that the Red Devils have reignited their interest after a move for PSG right-back Serge Aurier collapsed.
Mourinho admires Fabinho, having given the 23-year-old his debut as a Real Madrid player back in 2013, and it is claimed that the United boss is still a big fan of the defender.
The 20-time English champions have completed their third signing last week when they announced a deal to sign Nemanja Matic from their rivals Chelsea.
If the deal goes through, Fabinho becomes the United’s 4th signing of the summer following the arrival of Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic.
