The Brazilian has long been linked to a move to Old Trafford, though the Ligue 1 side were said to be demanding upwards of €40 million for him.

The 23-year-old remains at Monaco, but he continues to attract some top names and his father suggested Manchester could be his destination, but whether he fancies the red or blue side remains uncertain.

"We have been in talks with Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal and approached by Barcelona," his father, Joao, told French TV show J+1.

"We like Manchester United and Mourinho’s work, but we have a soft spot for Manchester City."

Fabinho joined Monaco from Rio Ave in July 2015. He spent his first season playing predominantly as a right-back, though he was utilised as a defensive midfielder. This campaign, he has been used almost entirely as a holding midfielder.
