Freiburg in for Fabio as Moyes continues clear out

Last Updated: Tue, 21 Jan 2014 13:21

Bundesliga club Freiburg are understood to be in advanced talks with United over the signing of Fabio in this transfer window.

The Brazilian full-back has hardly featured under David Moyes since returning from his loan spell at QPR last season and blotted his copybook with a reckless challenge on Swansea City's Jose Canas minutes after coming on as a substitute in the FA Cup third-round defeat.

Freiburg, who lie in 16th place in the Bundesliga standings, are desperate to bolster their squad and may only have to pay a small fee for the former Fluminense youngster who will be out of contract in the summer.

Fabio played in United's Under-21 match against Middlesbrough on Monday night and could be packing his bags for a switch to Germany later this week.
