Agent: Manchester United youngster Fábio set for QPR loan
The agent of young Manchester United full-back Fábio da Silva has told reporters that his client will spend next season on loan at Queens Park Rangers.
Fábio, 21, has played 53 times for the Old Trafford side, but will move to Loftus Road in order to ensure regular first-team football at a key stage in his development.
Cassiano Pereira told ESPN Brasil: "Fabio is a promising player and he needs to play. Because of that, Alex Ferguson suggested that he be loaned out to get more experience.
"He is a sought-after player because he is still young, and we think that his transfer to QPR was the best decision at the time.
"We received some offers from Germany and Portugal, but he preferred to stay in England to remain in touch with the country's football style and so that he would not have a problem to adapt to it when he returned to United."
Fábio has made two international appearances for Brazil, coming against Gabon and Costa Rica in November 2011
