Manchester United defender Fabio considering move
Reports from the Brazilian media are hinting that Manchester United full-back Fabio Da Silva could be ready to leave the Premier League champions, Sky Sports has reported.
A product of the Fluminense academy, Fabio has started just one league game this season under new manager David Moyes. The Brazil international has made only 22 appearances for Manchester United since joining the Red Devils in 2007, and spent last season out on loan to Queens Park Rangers.
The 23-year-old, whose twin brother Rafael is also on the books at Old Trafford, is unsure over his future in England and is tempted by a return to Fluminense. “I have a very big affection for Fluminense,” Fabio said. “I played there for seven years, and certainly if I have to go back to Fluminense I would go with great pride, because I have a special affection for them.
“I don't know [about my future]. I think the time has come and maybe in the next window or even next season, I think I might leave,” he is quoted as saying by ESPN Brasil.
“There are good possibilities,” Fabio continued. “I'm looking for other clubs. There's nothing certain, we'll leave it for later. I want to be happy. I want to play, I want to be with my family. I can return to Brazil, or maybe not, I'm checking with my agent to see what is the best for me.”
The left-back faces tough competition for a place in the starting line up from the experienced Patrice Evra, and Alexander Buttner. Fabio has been capped twice at international level by Brazil, making his debut in the 1-0 win over Costa Rica in 2011.
