United and Spurs miss out on Fabiano

Published Add your comment

Brazilian striker Luis Fabiano is set to reject a move to England after revealing he would prefer to move back to Brazil to continue his career.

The unsettled Sevilla forward has been linked with Tottenham Hotsphur and Manchester United as well as Italian giants AC Milan and Juventus in the past, but any hopes they had of securing the 30-year-old’s signature appear to be dead in the water.

Fabiano’s contract with the La Liga club runs until 2013 but he is keen to re-join Sao Paulo in his native Brazil to see out his career.


"Brazilian football is taking huge leaps forward and a lot of players are returning there," Fabiano told GloboEsporte.

"In three years we will have the World Cup and it will be fantastic. It is the ideal moment to return.

"I would like to continue my adventure at Sao Paulo. I was top goalscorer there and it would be nice (to go back), but Brazil has lots of other good clubs such as Flamego, Fluminese and Internacional."
