EXCLUSIVE: Manchester United sign left-back Fabio Coentrao from Real Madrid on season-long loan
Eyes and Voice has learned that Fabio Coentrao has joined Manchester United from Real Madrid on a season-long loan.
The 25-year-old Portugal left-back has been frozen out of Real Madrid this season, failing to make a league appearance after losing his place in the side to Marcelo last term.
United went for Coentrao after failing to secure a deal for Everton’s Leighton Baines.
Manager David Moyes secured the deal at the 11th hour after the transfer window shut on Monday night.
The move has been officially confirmed by La Liga officials.
As a further indication that everything was completed in time, Eyes and Voice has learned that Real Madrid have announced that they have signed Brazilian left-back Guilherme Siqueira on a season-long loan from Granada as replacement for Coentrao.
