MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly enquired about Bordeaux defender Pablo.

Jose Mourinho is desperately looking for defensive reinforcements to bolster his threadbare back four this January.

The boss has also cast his eye over Porto centre-back Eder Militao after injuries and lack of form ravaged United's defence.

But now Fox Sports Brazil say the Special One wants to raid Ligue 1 for Pablo.

The move won't come cheap though with the Brazilian centre-back, 27, who is under contract at Bordeaux until the end of the 2020-21 season.

Pablo only returned to Bordeaux earlier this year after spending almost all of 2017 back in Brazil after struggling to make the grade in Europe.

But the defender helped Corinthians lift the Brazilian Championship trophy and has come back to France better than ever.

After getting sent-off on the opening day of the season, Pablo has been a rock at the back, playing 18 times in all competitions for Bordeaux.

Pablo has also played twice for Brazil's national team - in wins over Saudi Arabia and Cameroon.

The two-cap Brazil international could be just what United are after as they've been forced into makeshift defensive teams seemingly all season.
