New Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has said he was never near joining Premier League rivals Manchester United, he has said.
“I was never close to signing for Manchester United, no,” he told FourFourTwo magazine.
“I heard things said about it, but the truth is it was never a strong possibility.
“I won’t deny there were a few conversations about my situation with Monaco, but there was never an official offer from United.”
Speaking in the August 2018 issue of FourFoutTwo, Fabinho says: “Yes, [it was] very easy. I was sad to leave Monaco, a club that gave me a lot of great moments, but in football sometimes you need new challenges and I thought it was time to move on.
“As soon as Liverpool declared their interest in signing me, it was a simple decision to make. A club with Liverpool’s history wants you? Come on, you just pack your bags and go. It will be an honour to wear the famous red shirt.”
