Christophers tweeted: “Fabinho has rejected Man City and PSG offers for Man Utd.”
Reports claim that the Europa League champions are reportedly closing in on a £44m deal for Fabinho, who played an integral role in Monaco’s Ligue 1 triumph last term. The Brazilian was also pivotal in helping Monaco reach the semi-final of the UEFA Champions League.
The 23-year-old is a versatile player, and is touted as the perfect replacement in the future for veteran midfielder Michael Carrick.
Fabinho scored 12 goals in 55 appearances last term for Monaco and would be a vital addition to the United squad. He has been linked with the English giants for quite some time now, as their Portuguese boss is said to be keen to get him.
However, the admiration seems to be mutual, as the Monaco midfielder was recently heard praising United, and also stating that it would be a tempting invitation if he gets the chance to join the Red Devils.
In an interview with Esporte Interativo, the versatile midfielder said: “It’s a tempting invitation. I would first talk to my agent, Monaco too, to decide everything right. But it’s a great club, sure enough I would think well about it.”
