The Brazilian defender, who spent six years at Manchester United, has signed for Middlesbrough on a two-year deal.

Fabio had been with Cardiff City since January 2014, making 68 appearances as the Welsh side were relegated from the Premier League and struggled for the past two seasons in the Championship.
