Have you bothered reading the article you are linking to? It makes no sense. The author says Liverpool have been tracking him since last year and the father below says the following.
United boss Jose Mourinho had fought to take the athletic midfielder to Old Trafford last summer, with the player's father saying at the time: "We have talked to Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, we have even been approached by Barcelona.”
They talked to everyone apparently. Yet nobody made a move...

If Jose had wanted him it would have been the easiest deal to pull considering they share agents and Fabinho has been linked with us since 2016. We’d have no issues paying what Monaco would have wanted.
I don’t think there was ever a time when Jose wanted him despite always being linked with him. He was fixed on Matic or Dier last year despite Fabinho constantly being linked. The Fabinho deal would have been the easiest to do out the three considering Chelsea weren’t keen on selling to us originally and Spurs would never sell Dier to us.
I suppose the question is why didn’t he want him? No way is Dier a better player and Matic isn’t getting any younger.
Matic has been Mourinhos best signing. We going for Fred apparently who was picked ahead of Fabinho in the Brazil squad.
