Fabinho won’t be joining his team-mate Kylian Mbappe at Paris Saint-Germain this summer, reports SFR Sport. 

Monaco have decided not to sell Fabinho to PSG this summer. The Ligue 1 champions feel that it would be stupid to strengthen a direct rival with two players in the same transfer window.

As a result, Mbappe is the only player that will move to PSG, who wanted Fabinho as well.

Paris Saint-Germain have made an aggressive expansion during this summer window. The French giants have recruited some top quality players to reclaim the Ligue 1 title and challenge in Europe. Dani Alves, Neymar from Barcelona, and Mbappe from Monaco (yet to be announced) are seen as game changers for the French club.

Unai Emery has been provided with unlimited funds to build a top team that can  challenge on the biggest levels. The Spaniard, who failed to win the Ligue 1 in his first season, will be given a second chance by the owners.

The former Sevilla manager wanted two of Monaco’s stars in Mbappe and Fabinho, but in the light of recent developments, it seems that he will get only one.

Mbappe is set to join PSG in yet another money spinning move after the record breaking transfer of Neymar. It is believed that the Parisian outfit will buy the French wonderkid on loan with a mandatory fee in excess of £150 million. The Ligue 1 club is signing Mbappe on loan to avoid FFP penalty that might have loomed large had they bought him in this window.
