Manchester United Tried to Get Coentrao On Loan

Jan Kruger

Real Madrid, Manchester United and Granada tried to pull off a buzzer-beater deal for Fàbio Coentrao and Guilherme Siqueira, but it was too late.

What a Monday to conclude this summer window. Real Madrid announced the departures of Kaka', Özil, Adán and Cheryshev. And just minutes before the deadline, rumours about Coentrao joining Manchester United and Siqueira signing with Real Madrid were spreading all around through Twitter by the Spanish journalists.

SportYou led the 'Coentrao-is-leaving-race' but the LFP confirmed that the Portuguese player is registered under Real Madrid's roster. Therefore, the clubs couldn't reach an agreement before the deadline and Coentrao will surely have a chance to wear Real Madrid's uniform soon.

Fàbio Coentrao was involved in a lot of transfer-talk all summer long and even Carlo Ancelotti confirmed his intention to leave. But Coentrao will indeed stay with Real Madrid and play an important part as the team's back-up leftback.
