The transfer window shuts in a weekâ€™s time and Monaco defender Fabinhoâ€™s wife has givenÂ Manchester United fans hope of her spouse joining Jose Mourinhoâ€™s revolution.
Eagle-eyed Instagram followers spotted Rebeca Tavares had followed United, amid speculation her 22-year-old husband is wanted by the club.
Brazil international Fabinho was interesting United a year ago but a move for the right-back failed to materialise. Despite Louis van Gaalâ€™s departure, the former Rio Ave full-back has continued to be linked with United.
Fabinho is represented by Jorge Mendes, who oversaw Mourinhoâ€™s appointment as United manager in May and has concluded deals for numerous players to join United since Cristiano Ronaldoâ€™s Â£12.24million transfer in 2003. Anderson, Nani, Bebe, David de Gea,Angel di Maria and Radamel Falcao all agreed deals under the guidance of Mendes.Rebeca Tavares followed United on Instagram
Another Mendes client, Renato Sanches, might have joined United instead of Bayern Munich had Ed Woodward appointed Mourinho sooner than May.
Fabinho scored a 90th-minute winner in Monacoâ€™s Champions League qualifying win over Villarreal on Tuesday night to clinch a group stage spot for the 2004 runners-up.
Mourinho has wanted to add a fifth signing to his squad for over a month now, with Juventus centre-back Leonardo Bonucci coveted but unattainable, while Real Madridâ€™s Raphael Varane was also linked with a move to United five years after Sir Alex Ferguson almost signed him.
