Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Hughes is reportedly attempting to sign Manchester United full-back Fabio Da Silva, after talks over a proposed move to Benfica have hit a snag.

Fabio Da Silva's proposed loan move to Benfica is reportedly on the verge of falling through because the player wants to remain in England.

The 21-year-old Brazilian full-back had been expected to spend the whole of next season with the Portuguese giants.

However, he is said to have had second thoughts about moving to Lisbon as he feels that regular first-team football in England would better improve his long-term chances of breaking into Sir Alex Ferguson's team on a consistent basis.

Queens Park Rangers manager Mark Hughes is closely monitoring Fabio's situation and is hoping to convince Ferguson to allow the player to spend next season at Loftus Road, according to The Sun.

Fabio, who moved to Old Trafford in 2008, has only made eight Premier League starts for the Red Devils.
