Manchester United have been in a gallant form of late, having won four of their first five matches this season so far in the Premier League, showing a dominant performance over their opponents and scoring goals at will to get themselves placed in the second position in the league table.

The whole team has been performing as a formidable unit, looking to make it another successful season in the Premier League after the grave disappointment of the last few seasons. However, their manager Jose Mourinho has been worried about his midfield and might look to add to his strength in the winter transfer window.

The wily Portuguese has his eyes on the Brazilian midfielder Fabinho, who has a star for his present club Monaco in the last season, helping them to get to the semi-final of the Champions League and also leading them to a gallant triumph in the Ligue 1, enabling them to clinch the title for the first time after a prolonged wait of 17 years.

The player has been one of the best defensive midfielders, who has been occasionally used in the defence as well by his present coach Leonard Jardim. The 23-year-old has an immense physical presence in the middle of the pitch, helping him to vie with the opponents and keep the ball at his disposal for a significant amount of time and also keep the opposition strikers at bay from scoring goals against his side with his hard-hitting tackles.

His brilliant attributes have attracted the eyes of a number of big-name clubs from all over Europe, including the likes of Italian champions Juventus and arch-rivals Paris Saint Germain, but at the present moment, Manchester United looks to be the frontrunners to sign the player in the forthcoming transfer window to add to their already strong looking side.

Jose Mourinho is in search of a viable partner for his Serbian enforcer Nemanja Matic and has been pairing him with Paul Pogba and Ander Herrera throughout the season so far. Though both have lived up to the expectations of their manager, the Portuguese might be willing to bring in a specialist for the position, with Fabinho fitting his bill perfectly.

The Brazilian has featured in 194 games so far for the reigning French champions and has been one of the mainstays in the midfield since his arrival in 2015. Monaco will surely try their level best to keep hold of their star player for the rest of the season as they look to defend their title successfully.
