Monaco star Vanderson admits it’s ‘great to hear’ that a club like Manchester United are interested in him.

The Brazil star joined Monaco from Gremio in 2021, and he was purchased with a view to playing right-back.

But the defender has been utilised in a right-flank position during his time on the south coast of France.

His performances for Monaco last season earned him a call-up to the Brazil squad and attracted attention from Europe’s elite.

Erik ten Hag had been keen to sign a new right-back but the need to strengthen other areas has seen him stick with Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

But Vanderson is aware of United’s interested, and says it’s ‘fantastic’ to be linked with such a big club.

‘It’s great to hear Barcelona and United ‘love’ you,’ Vanderson explained.

‘It’s fantastic to know your name is being mentioned by the big clubs. But, now I’m focused only on Monaco.’
