  • Fabinho

Fabinho was linked with a transfer to Manchester United last summer before Jose Mourinho's first full season in charge at Old Trafford but a move failed to materialise for the Brazilian.

Fabinho is one of a number of players drawing admiring glances ahead of what promises to be a busy summer for Premier League clubs.

Joao Roberto Tavares named Arsenal and Man Utd as being among the clubs that have make their interest known but he suggests that Fabinho may favour a move to Man City.

Manchester United and Manchester City are reportedly battling each other in the pursuit of Monaco defender Djibril Sidibe.

Thomas Meunier surged forward from right-back and set up Cavani, who thumped home his 34th goal of the season in all competitions. It's fair to say no one saw that coming. "They have top quality players; they made some good signings in January", Gomes said.

Fabinho has scored five goals and made one assist in 24 Ligue 1 games for Monaco so far this term.

Because according to another exclusive by Le10sport, who either have a very good contact within Monaco or writers with active imaginations, Monaco's star right-back is on Manchester City's radar.

Joao added: "We like Manchester United and [Jose] Mourinho's work, but we have a soft spot for Manchester City".

Chances are Mourinho will be looking for another midfield option later this year, and partnering Fabinho with Paul Pogba could be frightening for United's opponents.
