Manchester United full back Fabio da Silva will spend the season on loan next year, as Sir Alex Ferguson hopes that the Brazilian full back will develop and return to compete for a first team spot alongside twin brother Rafael.

"He understands the value of playing regularly at a higher level than we can give him at the moment," said Ferguson.

"I hope that Fabio will develop the same way as his twin."

It is understood that Bolton, Everton and even Italian side Juventus have been considering a move for the talented defender.
