Real Madrid left-back Fabio Coentrao could be on the verge of signing for Manchester United, according to the Sky Sports website.
The 27-year-old is thought be keen on a switch to Old Trafford after playing second fiddle to first-choice full-back Marcelo at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Coentrao, who was linked with a loan move to Old Trafford in September 2013, has gone on record to express his admiration for the club.
“I already showed that interest in playing there (at Manchester United),” he told Portuguese newspaper O Jogo.
“It’s one of the best clubs in the world, a club that I admire a lot. It would be an honour to play there.”
