Manchester United boss David Moyes is in talks with Real Madrid to bring attacking full-back Fabio Coentrao on loan to Old Trafford, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Coentrao was apparently close to joining the Premier League champions in the summer as rumours circulated towards the transfer deadline. Despite that, the proposed move did not go through, although Portuguese agent Jorge Mendes, who has close links with Man Utd, has reportedly told the club that the player is keen to join on loan until the end of the season.

The Portugal international has found himself very much out-of-favour - partly due to injury - under Carlo Ancelotti at the Bernabeu, appearing just four times for Real Madrid all season. Overall during his time at the club since arriving from Benfica in 2011, Coentrao has scored one goal in 67 appearances in all competitions.

Mendes, who oversaw Man Utd’s signings of Anderson, Nani and Cristiano Ronaldo in previous years, has also proposed to Moyes that he tries to sign another of his clients, Benfica defender Ezequiel Garay, while FC Porto’s Eliaquim Mangala is also said to be a target for the Red Devils.
