Fabinho’s future as a Monaco player begins to look bleaker with every passing day.
For much of this summer, the highly rated Brazilian has been linked with a move away from the club, and judging by a video that has recently emerged online, he is desperate to leave as soon as possible.
The video shows Monaco’s first-team taking part in a practice match in training, and in between, Fabinho is seen storming off the pitch, clearly annoyed. He first hauls of his training bib and throws it to the ground in disgust, and then proceeds to lash out at a ball on his way back to the changing room.

It is unclear as to what caused his sudden outburst of rage, but rumors suggest he was involved in a tussle with 18-year-old sensation Kylian Mbappe.
Eagle-eyed fans would be quick to point out that the video resembles one that recently emerged of Neymar while training with Barcelona.

The Brazilian superstar was involved in a spat with new signing Nelson Semedo, and was seen throwing his bib to the ground before booting a ball away in frustration, in what proved to be one of his last acts as a Barca player.
Monaco will be desperate to hold on to their star man, who has operated as both a right-back and a defensive midfielder for them.
His versatility and natural ability has attracted a lot of interest from several of Europe’s top clubs, and having already lost three players to the Premier League in Benjamin Mendy, Bernardo Silva, and Tiemoue Bakayoko, losing Fabinho is something they simply cannot afford, as they begin the defense of their Ligue 1 crown.
