Real Madrid defender Fabio Coentrao, who continues to be linked with Manchester United, is reportedly ready to quit the Spanish giants this month.

Coentrao, who last summer was also linked with Chelsea and Tottenham, nearly secured a season-long loan move to Man Utd on transfer deadline day, only for his proposed switch to Old Trafford to fall through at the start of September due to the transfer window closing before the deal could be finalised.

Los Blancos coach Carlo Ancelotti had admitted that the Portugal international wanted to quit the Bernabeu, although the player himself later claimed he was more than happy that a move to Manchester had fallen through.

However, according to AS, Coentrao is once again looking for a way out of Madrid during this month's transfer window.

Coentrao, who is close to returning to full fitness following a hamstring injury, had said last year: "There was the possibility of joining Manchester United, but I stayed at Real Madrid, and that’s what matters.

"It would have been bad if I had to stay despite having the chance to move to a better club, but that didn’t happen as I already am at the best club in the world.

"I want to do better than I did last season, although I was at a very high level already. I want to show everyone that I deserve to be at Real Madrid."
