According to France Football, AS Monaco’s €25m plus bonuses and incentives demand for Brazilian right-back/defensive midfielder Fabinho have brought Manchester United to cool their interest in the player, but things should pick up again after Monaco’s Champions League encounter with Villarreal tonight.
It is understood that an agreement was reached between Fabinho and AS Monaco that the player would be allowed to leave after the Principality side had qualified for the Champions League.
The player remains hell-bent on a move to the Premier League and he is still expected to get that wish before the window shuts.
Manchester United remain well-positioned, Fabinho remains an absolute priority of José Mourinho, but are not the only Premier League side in the mix. One thing is certain, Monaco will only sell one if any of Tiemoue Bakayoko and Fabinho.
