Red Devils or the Rossoneri for Sevilla’s Luis Fabiano?

Although La Liga side Sevilla certainly isn’t keen on the idea of selling Brazilian star Luis Fabiano, his contract is set to expire and the hitman for the Selecao is looking forward to moving on.

Fabiano still has one more year left on his current deal, but has expressed desire to either move on to Manchester United in the EPL, or AC Milan of the Serie A. It is believed the Brazilian wants to play for a big club, thus explaining his departure from Sevilla. Tottenham was also rumored to be interested in acquiring his services, although Luis Fabiano feels as if they’re not a big enough side for his needs.

The Brazilian has certainly been quite the revelation at this year’s World Cup. He scored two stunning goals against the Ivory Coast in Group G action, and will be a key element in Brazil’s quest for winning their sixth World Cup trophy.

Allegedly Fabiano wants to move to a bigger club to begin competing for the highest honors within the sport. “With all respect to Sevilla or Tottenham, I want to be able to win the Premier League or European Cup in the next three or four years.”

Heading to world-class organizations like Manchester United or AC Milan would certainly help the 29-year-old’s quest to achieve victory. In fact, Fabiano has been downright giddy when discussing the prospects of joining the likes of Wayne Rooney at Manchester United.

“You think about being Wayne Rooney’s strike partner and that is very attractive for any striker. I think the style of Premier League football suits me and I think I could score goals and be very successful there,” said the soon-to-be former Sevilla striker.

Luis Fabiano also went on to praise Sir Alex Ferguson, and seems prepared to leave La Liga for better success abroad following this year’s World Cup.

Despite Fabiano still having a year left on his contract, it appears negotiations could become a tad messy between the player and Sevilla. His hopes are that he can play with his new club for the upcoming season, although with the La Liga squad reluctant to move him, developments in this story may get interesting.

Looking forward, Sevilla finished fourth place in La Liga and will have an opportunity to qualify for next year’s Champions League. Whether they do that with or without star forward Luis Fabiano remains to be seen.
