Manchester United defender Fabio Da Silva has revealed that he is now looking into the possibility of staying at Cardiff beyond the end of his loan spell.

He moved to the bluebirds on a loan deal from United till the end of the season. He may have been playing with the relegation threatened outfit only since January, but the 23-year-old has already become a fan’s favourite due to his endeavour on the pitch. He has also stated that he is very much looking forward to keeping the club in the Premier league, as they fight against the odds to stay in the division.

The 23-year-old has been a regular first-team player for Cardiff. There have been suggestions that this could be his final opportunity to prove to United that he is capable of playing in the first-team.

However, Fabio has rejected such suggestions by saying that he does not have to prove to anyone. This is the first time he has not been playing along with his brother Rafael Da Silva, who continues to be an important player for United. Fabio has not been able to establish due to the presence of Patrice Evra, but the Frenchman is expected to leave the club in the summer.

This could potentially open the doors for Fabio to become a regular at United as well.

"I played for Manchester United and I know how to put pressure to one side. Fighting at the top and at bottom the pressure is quite similar. Both carry huge pressure. You must control your mind and focus on what needs to be done. I came to Cardiff week in week out, I want to play football. I want to play every game. I don’t have to prove anything to anybody, I just prove to myself I can compete at this level,” said Fabio.
