Manchester United and Arsenal target Fabinho is ready to ask his club to let him leave this summer. The trusted Brazilian played 49 games for Monaco as they won Ligue 1 and reached the Champions League semifinal this season.
Monaco has placed an embargo on more players leaving the club this summer after losing Bernardo Silva to Manchester City, with Benjamin Mendy, Thomas Lemar, Kyllian Mbappe and Tiemoue Bakayoko also set to leave.
However, Fabinho who has had four successful seasons at the club is said to want a move away this summer as he knows leaving when the ovation is loud would help him get a better deal.
Manchester United are the English side with the strongest interest in the midfielder, but Arsene Wenger is also monitoring the player’s situation in France.
Jose Mourinho appears to have given up on his pursuit of Chelsea’s Nemanja Matic after angering the Blues by hijacking their move for Romelu Lukaku.
Fabinho is versatile and can play as a right full back, defensive midfielder, or in central midfield.
