Manchester United have been admirers of the versatile Brazilian for some time, and the player has previously acknowledged that he would like to work with Jose Mourinho .

However, according to the Daily Record , Paris Saint-Germain have emerged as frontrunners for the 23-year-old and appear ready to meet Monaco’s valuation.

While it has been claimed that Fabinho only featured on a long list of potential signings at United, he would have been regarded as a key member of the squad with his ability to play in the centre of midfield and at right-back.

During his three years in Monte Carlo, he has scored a total of 19 goals from 139 appearances in all competitions.
