Fabio Coentrao: Real Madrid defender joins Monaco on loan
Real Madrid defender Fabio Coentrao has joined French side Monaco on a season-long loan deal.
The Portugal left-back struggled for first-team football at the Spanish club last season.
Former Manchester United manager David Moyes tried to bring him to Old Trafford in September 2013 but a transfer deadline day loan move fell through.
The 27-year-old joined Real from Benfica for a reported £25m in 2011.
